Watermelon Agua Frescas

It's finally starting to feel like summer is around the corner after a long, dreary winter (let's be real - it snowed in April). Summery weather leads to some of the best things: outdoor picnics, barbeques, days spent at the beach and many fun + outdoorsy activities. Another reason to love summer weather? The fresh cocktails that accompany.
