Mixed Melon, Lime and Coconut Agua Fresca recipe from Pati's Mexican Table Season 3, Episode 13 “My Piñata Party”


  • 12 cups (about 1 8-pound watermelon) seeded watermelon, cubed
  • 4 cups cantaloupe, cubed
  • 2 cups coconut water
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, (about 6 limes juiced)

  1. I am wanting to make this for my son’s Spanish class next week for Cinco de Mayo. When you say add a splash of seltzer, should I pour all of it in the pitcher for ease of serving? If I substitute strawberries for the watermelon and pineapple for the cantelope, I’m assuming I’d still do 12 cups & 4 cups, correct?

    Thank you! We enjoy watching your show on PBS.
