Watermelon to me is one gorgeous fruit, although not attractive on the outside, I love the color the pinkish red color fruit inside. When I was a kid I used to imagine the inside to be like the Beetle insect :P what do you think? the red fruit base and black dot seeds. I get really excited when I see watermelon during the summer times. Usually we enjoy this fruit cut or just blend it with some sugar as a chilled drink. I always love to try different refreshing fruit drink recipes and tried this Watermelon Agua Fresca and it was superb. This drink is from Mexico and very commonly sold by the street vendors, usually made with less sugar but I have used sugar for a sweet taste. I love the tangy taste of lemon in the drink and the frizzy taste from the soda. Its a perfect drink to welcome guests or enjoy with your family at home.
