With days becoming hotter, I have discovered a new obsession, the wonderfully refreshing Mexican coolers, the aguas frescas. I love their subtle flavors and the feeling that my body gets an internal moisture boost! My favorite is the cucumber agua fresca. Here’s how I prepare it:

AGUA FRESCA DE PEPINO

Makes 4 servings

1 medium cucumber

2 cups cold water

1 cup ice cubes

1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Peel and seed cucumber and cut into chunks. In a blender blend cucumber with remaining ingredients until completely smooth and pour into a glass pitcher, chill, covered.  Stir  before serving.

  1. Any more recipes to share? Or does one simply substitute various fruits for the cuke to get similar results? A favorite of mine: watermelon!! Thanks.
