Agua fresca is a delicious beverage that is perfect for Cinco de Mayo. It’s non-alcoholic, so it’s great for parties with children in attendance or for those who don’t drink alcohol.
This drink is also super simple to make! All you have to do is put everything in a blender and then strain out the seeds before serving over ice.
You can make this drink sugar free, too! Instead of simple syrup, sweeten your agua fresca with agave nectar.
Find some fun glasses to serve your agua fresca in! Margarita glasses work great, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
Add a little fun with paper straws and paper umbrellas! Your guests will love sipping on this yummy agua fresca throughout your Cinco de Mayo party.
- 2 cups watermelon (either seedless or with seeds will work)
- 2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
- Juice from 1 lime
- 4 cups water
- 1/4 cup simple syrup (or agave nectar for a no-added-sugar version)
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until all the fruit is liquified.
- Use a mesh strainer to strain the agua fresca into a pitcher. This will remove the seeds and any bigger pieces that didn't get blended all the way.
- Taste the agua fresca and add more simple syrup or agave nectar if desired.
- Add ice and serve immediately.
