4. Watermelon Lime Sparkling Agua Fresca: Lime-flavored sparkling water is an ingenious way to add extra interest and a welcome dash of effervescence to this four-ingredient melon cooler. (via Shared Appetite)
5. Pineapple-Ginger Agua Fresca: Reach for this agua fresca any time, but especially when you’re feeling a bit bloated. The pineapple and ginger within are a powerful, puffiness-fighting duo. (via At the Corner of Happy and Harried)
9. Peach and Basil Agua Fresca: We can’t wait to try this out with summer’s juicy, sweet peaches and fresh-from-the-garden basil. Until then, swapping in frozen fruit is a great way to go. (via Tesco Real Food)
12. Melon and Strawberry Agua Fresa: This agua is a great way to use up leftover melon and any not-so-pretty berries you may have in the fridge. It may be tempting to forgo it, but don’t skip the mint garnish — that small touch really takes the blend to the next level. (via So Much Love)
