How Aguas Frescas can Elevate your Event

Planning a memorable taco catering event is all about creating an experience that tantalizes the taste buds and leaves your guests wanting more. Njoy Tacos takes pride in offering authentic and flavorful taco experiences, but the perfect fiesta extends beyond just the food. Introducing aguas frescas, a vibrant array of refreshing, all-natural beverages, is the key to elevating your next taco catering event and offering your guests a truly delightful experience.

Aguas frescas, translating to “fresh waters” in Spanish, boast a rich history deeply rooted in Mexican and Latin American cultures. These vibrant beverages have been enjoyed for centuries, offering a cool and flavorful way to combat the heat and complement savory meals. Traditionally, aguas frescas were made using readily available seasonal fruits, flowers, and seeds, making them not only delicious but also a testament to resourcefulness and cultural ingenuity.

Refreshing Aguas Frescas by Njoy Tacos

Watermelon Agua Fresca

 At Njoy Tacos, we are proud to offer a selection of the most popular and refreshing aguas frescas, each bringing its unique flavor profile and cultural significance to your event. Watermelon agua fresca, a vibrant pink beverage is a quintessential summer drink. Made with the essence of fresh watermelon, a touch of lime, and a hint of sugar, it offers a delightful sweetness and a burst of hydration, perfectly complementing the spicy notes of your favorite tacos.mWatermelons, originally from Africa, were introduced to Mexico by the Spanish in the 16th century. The hot and dry climate made watermelon a valuable crop, and its juicy flesh became a natural choice for creating a refreshing beverage.


This deep red drink gets its vibrant color and unique flavor from hibiscus flowers, also known as jamaica flowers. The tart and slightly sweet taste of jamaica agua fresca is not only refreshing but also boasts potential health benefits, traditionally used as a natural remedy for various ailments. Hibiscus flowers are native to Africa and Asia, eventually reaching the Americas through trade routes. In Mexico, the flowers were readily available and became a popular ingredient in traditional drinks.


This creamy and slightly sweet beverage is made with rice, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Its smooth texture and subtle sweetness offer a delightful contrast to the savory flavors of tacos. Horchata is believed to have originated in Valencia, Spain, where it was traditionally made with tiger nuts (chufas). The drink was then brought to Mexico during the colonial period, where rice became a more readily available substitute for tiger nuts.

Lemon Infused Water

This simple yet refreshing beverage is a classic option for those who prefer a lighter and more subtle flavor. Slices of fresh lemon add a touch of citrusy zest to cool, filtered water, making it a healthy and hydrating choice for any occasion. Perfect for the Southern California spring season, whether its in Costa Mesa or San Diego.
