Refreshing Summer Aqua Fresca
The Agua Fresca combines multiple ingredients that not only a drink you will want to keep in rotation all summer long, but one that does a body good. Watermelon contains some of the same healthy red pigments found in red wine, gingerol which is a natural compound that gives ginger its zing as well as anti-inflammatory properties, and finally lemon juice boosts the uptake of these healthy compounds in the stomach, improving their distribution throughout the body. Enjoy!
