Spanish for "fresh water," agua fresca is a refreshing, fruit-infused drink that is served throughout Mexico. Depending on the ripeness of the strawberries, adjust the amount of sugar for desired sweetness.
4 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
6 cups hulled strawberries
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
How to Make It
Combine water and sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Place strawberries in a blender, and process until smooth. Combine the sugar mixture, strawberry puree, and juice; stir well.
Don't know if the other reviewers used strawberries that were in season but I don't think this even needed that much sugar. The strawberries I got were very sweet on their own so maybe just 1/4 cup would have been fine. I added some ice to make it thicker and only used about 1 1/2 cups water. Perfect summer drink!
Not bad! A bit too much water for my taste, so I poured some out. I also added a little more sugar, and instead of using just strawberries, I did 2 cups of strawberries, 2 of raspberries, and 2 of blueberries. It's a bit more sour with the other fruits, but nothing a little more sugar won't cure :) Good recipe.
We are a family that loves strawberries, so I thought this recipe is perfect! Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The star of the attraction disappeared was over-diluted. I would not recommend this recipe at all.
