This drink  is based on an agua fresca recipe in an article from the New York Times. I’d link, but I have changed it quite a bit. I’m sure Google will help you out if you really need to find the original.

Strawberry Watermelon Agua Fresca Cocktail

Assemble the above ingredients in a pretty glass in the usual fashion (see picture).  Serve on veranda, to ladies in pretty floral dresses. Offer some to the gentlemen, even though they already have their bourbon and cigars. Silly men! They don’t know what they are missing!
