This refreshing drink is served by roadside vendors all over Mexico. Not too much fruit, not too much sugar, just a beautiful way to quench your thirst on a summer day. From 'EatingWell.com' and posted for ZWT5. NOTE: Prep time DOES NOT include 4 hour chill time.

I really liked this! Refreshing and not overly sweet and the lime wasn't too tart. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
