Sparkling Cantaloupe Agua Fresca Recipe

On a hot day, this agua fresca with watermelon, lime juice, and club soda on top is very cool. 


– 2 pounds fresh cantaloupe cubes (6 cups) – 2 cups water – 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (from 2 limes) – 3 tablespoons honey – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 2 cups club soda, chilled – cantaloupe melon balls or cubes, for garnish 



Blend cantaloupe, water, lime juice, honey, and salt until smooth, maybe in batches. Discard solids after sieving. Pour strained juice into a pitcher.
