I love Agua Frescas, Mexican fruit beverages. This recipe is from Whats4eats. These refreshing beverages are typically served from large barrel-shaped glass containers.

The lime juice adds a lovely tartness to the drink making it more refreshing.

Some of the more traditional varieties are watermelon, cantaloupe and strawberry. I have given 6 fruit options, choose the fruit you like and enjoy!

It can be made from so many different types of fruit. It is what I drink the most of during the hot hot summer.
