Strawberry Lime Agua Fresca

Just in time for Cinco De Mayo!  

Agua Fresca is Spanish for Fresh Water and nothing is more refreshing than strawberries and lime mixed together.

It’s the perfect combination of sweet and tart and unlike a lemonade, the water is just subtly flavored with the fruit.   Never overpowering.  Just fresh, fruity water!

 

Perfect for parties or get-togethers, make a large batch for the whole crowd.  You could even make an adult version with your favorite vodka or tequila mixed in.

 

We start with fresh, plump California strawberries and juicy, green limes

 

Remove the green tops of the strawberries and slice the limes in half to ready for juicing

 

Rinse the strawberries thoroughly under cold running water

 

Pour the sugar over the top of the strawberries and stir to mix

 

Place the strawberries in the fridge for a few hours to macerate

 

Place the macerated strawberries in a blender or food processor and mix t0 combine.  Add in fresh lime juice

 

Pour the contents over a large carafe of ice water and stir thoroughly to combine

 

Top it with sliced strawberries and limes, and serve!

 

Not only tasty but gorgeous too!

 

Happy Sipping at the Fiesta!
