Agua fresca literally means “fresh water” in Spanish, but the popular Mexican beverage can be made from a bevy of ingredients like fresh fruit, grains, flowers, or seeds blended with water and sugar.

The alcohol-free drink is intended to be light and refreshing when temps are sky-high. When it’s hot in Dallas, there’s hardly a better way to stay hydrated. Head to one of these 10 Dallas destinations for super-refreshing aguas frescas in a truly impressive variety of flavors, ranging from classic jamaica (hibiscus) to strawberry milk.
