NOTES: Very ripe cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon all make delicious aguas frescas.
5 cups cubed peeled, seeded melon (from about 3 lb. melon; see notes)
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
1/3 to 1/2 cup lime juice
In a blender, whirl melon, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 cup water until very smooth. Pour into a large pitcher (at least 3 qt.). Whisk in 1/3 cup lime juice, 7 cups water, and more sugar and lime juice to taste. Chill until cold, at least 1 hour or up to 1 day. Serve over ice.
