This Watermelon Lime Sparkling Agua Fresca is a cool and refreshing summertime drink that’s super quick and easy to put together.
I know I keep harping on this, but I love summer, and not just because I get these two months off every year. Although, let’s face it, that’s a huge perk 😉
For me, summer is about so many things that bring me happiness and joy. Spending time with family. Reconnecting with friends. Finally seeing my wife for an extended period of time (during the school year, we somehow rarely see each other since our work schedules are kinda opposite).
Backyard bbqs. Trips to the city for eating adventures. Celebrating our anniversary and my birthday (I’m going to be 30 in a couple weeks!). Don’t worry, I only act like I’m about 12 years old, so if you take the average of those two numbers, I’m still in my twenties 🙂
S’mores. Margaritas. Grilling. Lots of grilling.
Summertime = Happy Time.
So listen. Dasani wants to know what makes you happy? What makes you sparkle?
They have a pretty awesome contest happening right now and YOU can totally win a Sparkling Getaway to the Westin Diplomat in Ft. Lauderdale. It includes airfare, hotel, and spa treatments for 4.
How do I enter this awesome contest?!
Great question. All you need to do is upload a photo of what makes you sparkle to twitter and/or instagram and include the hashtag #SparkleWithDasani. And don’t forget to follow @dasaniwater so they can contact you if you win 🙂
I hope you win. That would make me happy. Just make sure to send me a postcard and cool souvenir.
Winner will be selected in early August.
Do you know what else makes me happy? Summertime drinks. There’s nothing better than a cold, refreshing, fruity drink during the summer.
Asheley is obsessed with watermelon throughout the summer. Since I’m a good husband, I made this Watermelon Lime Sparkling Agua Fresca for her, using Dasani’s new sparkling water. It’s super, ridiculously easy to whip up and literally tastes like summer in a glass.
And we all know… a happy wife is a happy life 🙂Print

The perfect summer drink, Chris. Love this. And I act like I’m 12 too. It helps with the boys in the house here.
Hahaha I don’t have boys in the house… so what’s my excuse?!
You already know how I feel about watermelon and lime. BFFs!
Sigh – why do you two have to live so far across the country – we could all hang out and sip watermelon drinks all summer long.
PS. HAPPY ALMOST BIRTHDAY, ya old fart. (for the record, you’re 7 months older than me).
Hahaha 7 months older… darnit! You’re not that far behind me, almost old fart! 🙂
Haha @ happy wife, happy life. I tell Caleb that ALL the time 🙂
This looks so refreshing for the 1 million degrees it’s been lately. Love the watermelon! Pinned 🙂 Happy weekend Chris!

Happy wife happy life! So funny. I’ve made a similar agua fresca and it’s so good and so refreshing. Perfect for the heat of summer. I love that you added some sparkling water for some fizz.
What an ingenious drink, Chris! I’m totally going to win that contest…but don’t worry, I’ll send you a cool souvenir. Like a muscle shirt that says “I ♥ Florida” or a brightly colored tchotchke. Maybe both if you get lucky.
This drink sounds so delicious and refreshing! I love Dasani water, but I’ve never tried their sparkling water. I’m not sure why I didn’t know about it, but I’m glad I do now! This sparkler will definitely liven up my summer. 🙂
The sparkling water is new 🙂
The Big 3-0! Happy Early Birthday Youngster! And, I just happen to have limes, watermelon and Sparkling Dasani in my fridge right now!
Hahaha still 29 for another week. Phew… 30 sounds old.
