Okay so it’s hot here and this watermelon agua fresca drink is the only thing this pregnant lady wants right now. It’s so refreshing and so easy to make. With only three ingredients, this is a great summer drink recipe. 

Watermelon blended with fresh lime and lime zest and then mixed with sprite makes for a sweet and citrusy sparkling drink. 

It’s one of my favorite Summer time drink recipes. 

Different Flavor Agua Frescas:

You can change up the recipe with any fruit. Here are some of my favorite agua fresca flavors.

  • mangoes
  • raspberries
  • blueberry
  • orange
  • pineapple mint 
  • strawberries
  • peach

Try adding some dry ice to the drink too for a fun Halloween drink or to just add a bit of mystery.

Make Ahead Drink:

This drink is great to make ahead of time too! I recently made it for my brother’s wedding and it was an amazing make ahead drink to cut down on prep time.

To make ahead make the watermelon pulp and keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

Once you are ready to serve, add the Sprite and stir to combine.

You will want to keep the Sprite out until you are ready to serve so that it stays nice and bubbly. 

I love serving this drink for a Mexican fiesta or for a refreshing drink for a Summer dinner party.

Looking for more easy summer recipes? We love making this ice cream in a bag for kids. Or serve this delicious agua fresca with my Easy Instant Pot Recipe: Pork Carnitas. It makes for the perfect Mexican fiesta.
