Agua Fresca

glistening drink
This recipe comes from @suek who says: "I've been living in Mexico for the past 7 months. Mexico = margueritas for many. But for us sober folks, Agua Fresca is the magic drink to order in restaurants. Agua Frescas are basically ripe, juicy fruits blended with water and ice (and sometimes sugar), so the water takes on a subtle flavour of the fruit. These drinks arenˋt super intense or tasty like juices. They are super hydrating and refreshing though. Also very easy to make at home.
My current favourite is cucumber and ginger.


2 small peeled cucumbers
Small knob of fresh ginger
A few ice cubes
Two or three cups of cold water


Put all ingredients in the blender
Blend for a minute or two
You can drink it as is, kind of thick and pulpy
Or if you prefer it a bit smoother pour it through a fine sieve to get rid of the pulp
Serve with more ice
Some other favourites flavours:
Strawberry and mint
Apple and mint
Lemon and lime
Mango and pineapple
Disfruta! (That's Spanish for 'enjoy'.)
