Guess what today is? A very special day to celebrate my super friend Jenny (aka: Picky Palate) Jenny is having a baby boy really soon and a group of gals are having a virtual baby shower for her! I have decided to bring a cool, summery Blueberry Mint Agua Fresca (healthy fruit punch) to the celebration.

This refreshing drink is simple to prepare and is oh so party pretty.

Jenny, we are all so excited for you and your family, we can’t wait to meet your little guy!

Top your fresca with some edible flowers for a vibrant twist.

Add a few springs of fresh mint too.

Remember the Sweet Honey Mint Green Tea I posted recently? That will be your base for this.
