Aguas frescas come together in just a few whirs of your blender or food processor, but put them in a pretty glass pitcher and they will be quite impressive at your next party. This drink is non-alcoholic (and a huge hit with my toddler), but if you want to take it to the next level, -- I wont' blame you a bit -- try adding a splash of tequila to your glass.
