Mango Agua Fresca

Hola!  Here’s a Mexican favorite for you all today. Agua fresca means fresh water in Spanish. Fresh water is infused with a fruit essence in this popular Mexican drink. Any pulpy fruit like cantaloupe, mango, pineapple, orange or water melon will work well for this drink. It shouldn’t taste like a smoothie, so strain the blended fruit pulp and mix it with water to give it a fruity taste. This is a  perfect, light and refreshing thirst quencher on a warm summer afternoon. Drink up amigos, after all its summer somewhere in the world.
