Watermelon Agua Fresca Recipe

Watermelon agua fresca recipe, perfect for summer! | CatchMyParty.com

How about a refreshing watermelon agua fresca to cool you down this summer? Michelle from Michelle's Party Plan-It is here with a simple and delicious recipe.

Watermelon is a favorite summer fruit in our house, and what better way to enjoy this delicious fruit than in a refreshing agua fresca? Aqua frescas are traditional fruit drinks served all over Mexico. My family recently visited Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles, where we spent the day sampling traditional Mexican food along with an array of agua frescas.

My kids enjoyed the watermelon agua fresca so much, that they asked me to make it for them over the weekend.

Combining our traditional family recipe with the convenience of a juicer, I made them a batch to enjoy poolside. Here's my recipe:
