Next to Kool-Aid, aquas frescas are probably the best non-alcoholic drink ever. Shan and I had lunch at Lola's today so I got a huge watermelon drink. I still have like half a cup and I went to take a drink. Note to self: Never, ever drink warm agua fresca again. The combination of just a little pulp, the sickly-sweetness and the cloying mouthfeel just made me want to puke.

looks kinda like the melon agua frescas but tastes like a lightly sweetened potato juice.

Probably would be good warm either. :P

I wonder if it's related to Coco Rico, this Purto Rican soda my wife loves.

pretty sure that the mamey sapote contains no coconut and the coconut contains no sapote.

Coco Rico is good, but it doesn't compare to drinking it straight from the coconut. Mmmm... Refreshing!
