Watermelon & Berry Aqua Fresca With Sparking Water

It's Monday!

The weather in DC is still hot and humid. Over the weekend I wanted a refreshing and slightly sweet drink after doing a 12 minute dumbbell video: I'm still INCREDIBLY sore after it. Every part of my body aches. Oy.

Anyway....I had watermelon and blueberries and strawberries and thought aqua fresca will be a great way to go. My plan was to puree, strain, chill and drink aqua fresca, but the mixture came out thicker than expected, so I added sparkling water. You can add champagne or vodka ;)

Puree the berries and watermelon.

Cool.
Fill glasses with ice. Add the cooled strained aqua fresca and top with sparkling water.

How fun is the fizzing sound!? Also, you can listen to my music of choice while I'm cooking ;)
