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.
1 ripe mango, pitted, peeled and cut into chunks
1.5 cups cold water
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
3/4 teaspoon honey or sugar ( I used honey)
lime wedge for garnish
1. Combine mango and water and blend until smooth.
2. Pour through a strainer into a pitcher.
3. Stir in the lime juice and honey.
4. Garnish with lime wedges.
