Touch and smell the fluid and see if its water, oil or some other kind of fluid. wipe it with a paper towel to see if there is any color to the fluid.

It's most likely condensate from the A/C. The important fluids, coolant and oil, seem to often be caught by the underbody aerodynamic panels, and don't end up on the driveway.
