Watermelon Fresca

I was having lunch at Native Foods the other day and decided to switch up my normal routine (watch out, Susan’s getting crazy!!!). Instead of getting my favorite Lavender Lemonade I went for the Watermelon Fresca drink. It was beyond delicious and refreshing on a hot, humid day and it was not overly sweet as I had expected. Although the lemonade is still my favorite, the Watermelon Fresca is a great option with way less calories and sugar. For this Face Off I decided to recreate the Watermelon Fresca and booze it up a bit. If you didn’t know…watermelon is back in season, oh yeah, and it’s finally warm in Chicago, so give this refreshing drink a try this weekend.
