Watermelon Agua Fresca


Watermelon Agua Fresca

A few sips of agua fresca [AH-gwah FREHS-kuh] — a mix of fresh fruit juice, water, and citrus — and you’ll be refreshed. In-season watermelon is great for this beverage without being cloying — adjust the amount of sugar based on the fruit’s sweetness.
