Strawberry-Lime Agua Fresca

How often do you go to a child's party where they offer up sugary juice box after juice box? This agua fresca is still yummy and sweet, but has a lot less sugar. Plus, you can control the amount of juice kids are having by pouring servings in 4-ounce cups. The strawberries are so delicious in this drink, but watermelon and pineapple are also good stand-ins. For a real happy hour, stir in some rum for an adult cocktail.
