Watermelon Agua Fresca

Watermelon Agua Fresca

Agua fresca is a drink made by combining blended fruit, chopped fruit, water, and sugar, then letting the mixture macerate. This version is popular with both kids and adults. You can make it earlier in the day and keep it chilled until ready to serve on a hot summer day.
