Watermelon Agua Fresca

AguaFresca2Guys.  I have a confession.  It might just be summer love, but I am completely smitten with a new a treat.  That, my friends is Watermelon Agua Fresca.  So refreshing, hydrating, and delicious.  It actually might be Aguas Frescas or "fresh waters," so please forgive me.  Regardless of what you call it, start sippin' these babies before summer runs out. Agua Fresca can be made in a verity of flavors.  Most summer fruit like melon and pineapple can easily be used, especially those with high water content.  Pretty much all you are going for is blended fruit, water, and sweetened.  My favorite version?  Watermelon Mint.


For this drink, I've blended up some summer watermelon, made a mint simple syrup, and topped it off with some sparkling water.  So next level.  So move over lemonade, and say hello to Watermelon Agua Fresca!
