Cucumber Mint Lime Agua Fresca

DFGFVGNVEGEZ

Agua fresca means cool water in Spanish and is a light, refreshing, non-alcoholic drink. It can be any combination of fruit, herbs, water, sugar, seeds, or cereal. This one is great for a party because it’s a great color and most people like the cucumber, mint, and lime combo – which is low FODMAP.
