Strawberry Agua Fresca

Strawberry Agua Fresca created by cookiedog

From Cooking Light magazine. Spanish for "fresh water", agua fresca is a refreshing, fruit-infused drink that is served throughout Mexico. Depending on the ripeness of the berries, adjust the amount of sugar for desired sweetness. Frozen strawberries would be fine in this. I like this with 2-3 times the water or seltzer water for a thinner drink. I also increase the sugar.

    Thank you! Our strawberries are unpleasantly mushy this year and this was a great way to put them to use anyway. Didn't expect it to taste so ... fresh, but it is really yummy and really refreshing.

    So refreshing! I used stevia instead of sugar and added a little extra lime because I like tartness. My boyfriend added rum to his :) I'll try this with other fruit as well! Thanks!

    Really good! I strained it a bit to remove most of the seeds and pulp.

    I wanted something different than tea or water and I'm not big on real sweet things, so I did this with some fresh berry mix I had from the store. Strawberries mostly with a few bluberries and blackberries and kiwi. About 3/4 a cup, 2 tsp sugar, 1/2 cup water and a squeeze of lemon I had in the fridge. Blended over ice. It's delicious.

    very easy, very refreshing drink. First time I made it I used lime juice concertrate, I dont reccomend that and i decided I better try it the right way before reviewing. The trip to the market for a fresh lime is worth it, this is a tastey drink. I also threw in some ice for part of the water the second time around. The result was a sweet slightly slushlie drink, very nice, will try this again. Made for Bev tag
