Aguas Frescas If you've ever been to a busy street market in Mexico, you might have noticed one or two food carts selling bright-colored fruit juice in large plastic containers. These are agua fresca. The term agua fresca roughly translates to fresh water and is a very popular refreshment in Mexico.
The Fresca brand was first introduced in the U.S. in 1966, but Coca-Cola uses the brand differently in Mexico. In the U.S., it is a calorie free drink where in Mexico it is a regular citrus soda, sweetened with sugar.
