Can some one recommend a place where I can get a watermelon aqua fresca? I am located near Royal Ln and Preston so Richardson area or Love field is easily accessible if you know of any around there. Thanks!!

    With all this horrible hot, humid weather, I've got to try a watermelon aqua fresca! It sounds, so refreshing.

    babyinex910, thanks for the tip!

      You are also close to Supermercado El Rancho off Coit and Spring Valley. They have a fruteria that is dedicated to made to order fresh juices and aguas frescas. I've seen watermelon there.

          Hmm, I haven't ever seen a watermelon aqua fresca but, I'd be anxious to know as well. Sounds delicious.
          Most of the (real) Mexican places I eat at serve a delicious hibiscus aqua fresca called, jamaica. The "j" is pronounced like an "h". If you see it, order it. I love the hibiscus aqua fresca served at Sea Shack (had one there today) and El Tizoncito in Oak Cliff.

          El Ranchito on Jefferson Avenue in Oak Cliff serves a delicious watermelon Margarita. Maybe........
