The first recorded recipe for a drink similar to Fresca was created in 1866 by Mexican bartender, Agustin Lara. His recipe, called "Agua de Pina", was made with sugar, water, lime juice and pine nuts. Lara's recipe became popular in Mexico and was eventually exported to the United States, where it became known as the "Pineapple Cooler".
The modern version of Fresca was created in the 1950s by Coca-Cola. The company wanted to create a new drink that would be popular in hot weather, and so they came up with a recipe that combined grapefruit juice and carbonated water. The drink was an instant hit, and it remains one of Coca-Cola's most popular products to this day.
