What is spa water on TikTok?

TikTok’s viral spa water originated from user, Gracie Norton.

She posted a video on the platform putting together a drink she named ‘spa water’ and claimed that the summer recipe was her own.

Little did she know that her creation is actually a traditional soft Latin beverage known as, Agua Fresca – which means ‘cool water’ in Spanish.

Agua Fresca is a light non-alcoholic, fruity drink popular throughout Mexico.

The beverage is made from fruit, water, and sugar with ice added to the mix to make it refreshingly cool.

What is the controversy surrounding TikTok’s spa water?

Norton’s video received immense backlash on TikTok after it was revealed that her ‘spa water’ drink was actually a popular Mexican beverage.

The influencer claimed that the drink was her own personal recipe, but in fact, it was a replica.

As a result, the internet flooded Norton’s video with comments directed at her apparent ignorance and misappropriation when it came to naming the drink.

Her TikTok account has since been banned and she issued an apology to those she “offended.”

“Recently I filmed a spa water series, which I titled incorrectly. The proper name for this drink is Agua Fresca, and the origin belongs to the Latin community,” she wrote in a statement.

“Many of you have let me know that you would feel most comfortable if the videos were completely removed, so that is what I have done.

“A majority of my content is about celebrating the many ways we can show our bodies love through trying new recipes, and I am aware that it is my responsibility to continue to educate myself on the origin of those recipes.

“I sincerely apologize to the Latin community and those of you that I have offended.”

Norton has yet to respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
