4 Delicious Agua Fresca Recipes and Bar


In LA, when the weather is warm during spring and summer, agua frescas are served at farmers markets, street fairs and flea markets. Agua fresca, Spanish for “cool water” or “fresh water,” is a mix of fruit, flowers or herbs, sugar and water creating a refreshing and tasteful drink for a warm day! I love them for parties and entertaining because they’re colorful, taste delicious and you can be creative when brainstorming unique flavor combos. They’re traditionally served in these and you use a ladle to pour them into cups. I also like to serve with a plate of fruit so guests can add in other berries for even more taste and color!

Add a half bag of ice in each to serve.

Watermelon, Cucumber & Lime Agua Fresca Recipe

Guava & Coconut Agua Fresca Recipe

  • 2 21 oz cans guava
  • 4 13.5 oz cans coconut milk
  • 16 cups water


  1. Roughly chop the fruit and add the ingredients (except the water) into the blender. My blender could only take half of the ingredients at a time, so I split it up. Pour the mixture into the containers, then add the water and ice. Each recipe makes 6 quarts.

      Hi Lauren! I bought those at a grocery store called Vallarta. If you have one near you they are only about $1.50 per one!! Such a steal!!

    is there any way to convert thos recipe to single servings? Or at least to a smaller batch? I’d love to make these but I don’t want to make 5-6 quarts just for myself, and it would probably be a lot for a small group of ppl as well.
