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!!

    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........

        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.

          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!
