Spiked Agua Fresca Recipe

Spiked Agua Fresca recipe is the perfect way to quench your thirst and unwind this summer. Made with fresh watermelon, lime juice, mint, and rum, this is likely to become your favourite cocktail of the summer.

I love to make easy cocktails on a hot summer day. After putting in the time at work, it is nice to be able to mix up something wonderful in just a few moments of time so I can get to the serious business of relaxing! This recipe was inspired by some of the wonderful Agua Frescas I have had the pleasure of sipping, made only better with a splash of rum. If you aren’t a drinker, feel free to omit the rum and you will still have a seriously delicious and refreshing beverage that is perfect for summer sipping.

How To Make the Spiked Agua Frescas
Cocktail

If you are having a family party, or a BBQ, this makes a great beverage to serve them too. They will love the combination of tangy lime, sweet watermelon, rum, and cooling mint together. This is best served chilled or over ice. You can make a batch ahead of time and keep it in the fridge so it is ready when you are.

Versatile Spiked Agua Fresca Recipe

Agua Fresca is awesome because there are so many ways to make it, and there are tons of options to mix in from grains, cereals, seeds, and all kinds of fruit. But, there is something about simple ingredients and no fuss, that makes this Spiked Agua Fresca really special. I have a feeling you will agree!
