Strawberry Lime Agua Fresca

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!
