You guys! Happy 4th of July!!!

Do you have plans for today?? Do they include burgers and hot dogs?! LUCKY!
My husband is working thus my plans for face-stuffing will have to wait until after 5 p.m. Until then, you can find me over at Facebook or Pinterest. Or both.
Most likely, both… 

So. Once upon a time I was a hungry, pregnant woman. I was so hungry that eating was a sport. I would try to outdo myself each and every time, just to see how much I could eat in one sitting.

Okay… I wasn’t THAT bad. BUT I was hungraaaay!

One day, during that whole 9-month ordeal, the hubs and I decided to live it up and go to Olive Garden for dinner. 😉 The first thing that I saw on their virgin-drinks menu was an Agua Fresca. Or maybe it was an Acqua Fresca. It was colorful, it was bright, it looked incredibly refreshing, and I ordered a pitcher.

I enjoyed it so much that I went back a few more times the following week just to load up on their berry water. I was 8-months pregnant. In JULY! The heat was a killer.

Then, one day, soon after I had the little babe, I went, again, to sip on some acqua-agua-thingamajig.

Get this. They discontinued it. Done. Finito. NO MO’. The nerve! Here I was, in my 4th trimester, and without my summer-drink. I was so bummed out. Honestly. It was an awful experience.

Few hours later I was thanking the Lord for Google. As soon as I typed in “agua fresca”, Google told me all about it and I was armed with the ingredients that helped me concoct this beauty in my own kitchen.

I’ve been making it ever since, almost 5 years now, and it is one of the most refreshing flavored waters, yet.
