Watermelon Agua Fresca

Agua  Fresca (which translates to cool or fresh water) is a refreshing drink that is a summertime favorite in our home.  Sweltering heat and humidity are no match for this thirst quenching treat on a hot summer day.   Agua Fresca is not thick like a smoothie or  slushy drink, it’s simply an infused water packed with flavor.  If you are not a fan of Watermelon, you can substitute your favorite summer fruits.  Nectarines, peaches, berries, the possibilities are limitless.

Please note the measurements in this recipe are approximate.
