Watermelon Agua Fresca


Agua fresca is a popular Mexcian drink made from fruits, flowers blended with sugar and water. Agua fresca literally means 'fresh water' and you can find this refreshing drink served by roadside vendors all over Mexico. Summer's officially over here but it's still very hot. To keep hydrated in summers, we must drink plenty of water and fresh juices. This drink is a great thirst quencher for hot summer days.

Agua fresca can be made using a variety of fruits, but the most popular ones are melon and pineapple. You can keep it simple or infuse more flavors by adding herbs. Watermelon is made up of 90 percent water, which helps in keeping us well-hydrated during hot days. So get a watermelon, make this low-calorie drink and cool your body in the blistering heat.
