Refreshing Agua Fresca Recipe
My kids love to have lemonade stands. While I admire their enterprising ambitions, I pretty much hate letting my kids sell things to our neighbors. I suppose I take it all too personally. I feel like I am asking my neighbors for money through my kids. If my kids were selling something good, that would be one thing, but while my kids have a surplus of creativity, they lack quality merchandise.
In addition to the classic lemonade, our kids have sold pencils they found laying around the house. My youngest once sold pipe cleaner holiday ornaments, another time the kids sold melted ice pops that they marketed as “juice” and yet another time the kids sold rubber band bracelets.
I typically allow the kids to make a lemonade stand but insist on cashless transactions. It’s ok to give the lemonade away and only take money if our neighbors insist on paying. This theory changed the day I made this agua fresca recipe. This is the kind of beverage that is so refreshing, that everyone will want some! This year I will personally hold an agua fresca stand and I will charge for every single cup!
About Agua Fresca Recipe
Agua Fresca means “fresh waters”. You can infuse agua fresca with almost anything; strawberries, lemons, watermelon, blackberries, cantaloupe…you name it, it’ll work! I personally love the combination of fresh mint and tangy, tart limes. This recipe is super easy, you literally blend all the ingredients, drain and serve! This agua fresca recipe will go quickly, and if it doesn’t it’s ok, it tastes even better after it sits!
This agua fresca recipe is exactly what you need on a hot summers day, and just like this Cucumber Mint Cooler Recipe or this Brazillian Lemonade Slushie, it will cool you down and quench your thirst in the best possible way!

- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 bunch mint leaves
