Watermelon Agua Fresca

I think of picnic’s and I think of Watermelon. Watermelon Agua Fresca is the perfect beverage to take a long with you on a picnic. It’s all of the wonderful Watermelon flavor without all the sticky mess, seeds and bulk.

You can’t really beat that.

Not to mention, a Watermelon Agua Fresca can be turned into a cocktail so easily by just adding whatever alcohol you think seems delicious.

For the heck of it, we mixed a little with Blue Curacua and light rum to see if it actually tasted good and well, it was amazing – plus really pretty!

But that’s not the twist I gave this particular Watermelon Agua Fresca.

This pretty little glass of watermelon goodness, is not your typical Watermelon Agua Fresca.

So what does Agua Fresca mean?

Agua Fresca literally translates to Fresh Water. It’s definitely a refreshing recipe, that will help keep you hydrated all summer long. 

In fact, I contemplated changing the title to fit the actual recipe… it would then be Watermelon Agua Rosa Fresca.

That is because of my twist. Instead of using only fresh water, I used rose water too. And oh my, what a wonderfully sweet and fragrant glass of Watermelon water did we enjoy!

We’ve always enjoyed a wonderful glass of Watermelon Agua Fresca on a hot summer afternoon. Adding the rose water just took it to the next level.

I love watermelon! I'll have to give this a try. I'm thinking a splash of cucumber vodka might not be bad in it as well.
