Agua Fresca, literally means “fresh water” is a refreshing thirst quencher in summer months. With summer officially here, this beverage is all you need to beat the heat.
Watermelon is my favorite summer fruit and this watermelon-lime agua fresco is the easiest and most delightful summer drinks. When you have ripe, red, and sweet watermelon, you only need some lime juice and sugar to make this cold drink.
