12 Thirst-Quenching Agua Fresca Recipes
12 thirst-quenching agua fresca recipes that are perfect for summertime.
Agua fresca (“fresh water” in Spanish) is a Mexican non-alcoholic drink made with fruit, sugar and water. It’s cool, refreshing, delicious, easy to make and requires only a few ingredients, a blender, and a fine-mesh sieve to strain the pulp.
You can use just about any fruit: strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple, watermelon, etc. Look for the ripest fruit available—the riper the fruit, the less sugar you’ll have to add to the recipe.
Whip up a few batches of these colorful agua fresca recipes and serve them at barbecues, picnics, pool parties and family gatherings.
