Agua Fresca: Two Ways

Agua fresca2Agua fresca3Summer time has us in the mood for refreshing beverages. We love a good cocktail but there are plenty of delicious non-alcoholic drinks to be made as well! Currently we are loving Agua Frescas, which are a lighter version of fresh fruit juice. Here are two simple recipes for making your own Agua Fresca.Agua fresca watermelon1Agua fresca watermelon2Watermelon and Mint Agua Fresca, makes 6-8 servings.
