    I love agua fresca! It is very refreashing on a really hot day. Like we have today...again.

    I would do it with Splenda, though 'cause I'm diabetic.

    I like to add frozen strawberrys for some ice cubes. Also if you have a lot berrys blend them up and pour in ice trays freeze and then put in freezer bags. Summer all year around. [​IMG]

    I'm not a big fan of gin.
    Vodka adds no flavor of its own & you could use one of the lemon-flavored ones.
    If you use rum you have a mojito [​IMG]
