Ever since I saw a gorgeous looking watermelon drink on Nabeela’s blog, I have been wanting to try it. I googled to learn more about this Mexican street food fare and learnt that Agua Fresca literally means “fresh water” and also found a recipe here. The watermelon season is through here but I was fortunate to find a few at Spencer’s.
An absolutely chilled delightful lemon-flavored afternoon treat to the core! I served it along side a Mexican meal consisting of Mexican rice, corn chips, mango salsa and dumplings in baked beans sauce.
