Watermelon Aqua Fresh

Who doesn’t like Watermelon in summer,it’s a natural cooler .A watermelon contains about 6% sugar and 91% water by weight. As with many other fruits, it is a source of vitamin C. There was a watermelon sitting in my fridge for few days.I did ate half of it and decided to use the other half for a cooler drink and I named it as ‘Watermelon Aqua Fresh ‘ becos its not pure juice as I used lots of water and ice. It easy to make and trust me you are gonna love it 🙂
