Sparkling Watermelon Agua Fresca – A refreshing and healthy summer drink jam-packed with fresh watermelon, lime juice, and sparkling water. Perfect for a party!
I am all about making fun drinks right now! My most recent one was the Copycat Chick-Fil-A Frosted Lemonade which was SO good! I have been wanting to make a watermelon agua fresca for a while, the color is always so gorgeous and it sounds so refreshing! I finally got around to making time in my schedule to make these and they were a hit! I liked how easy it was to adjust too, I really liked it with extra lime while others who tried it preferred a bit more mint. One of my friends even put a few scoops of ice cream in and made an ice cream float!
I can’t believe it is already the 4th of July weekend! It really ended up sneaking up on me a bit! I’ve been on vacation for the better part of the past two weeks and then trying to recover from it since then before popping up on a weekend trip to the Au Gres area! It’ll be a fun weekend playing some Euchre and having a few bonfires! I’m excited because we are trying a recipe that we saw Chef Tim Hollingsworth prepare at the event I went to a few weekends back! It was a beef tri-tip on baguette with a garlic aioli!
