Cantaloupe-Berry-Agua-Fresca

Aguas frescas, Spanish for “cool waters” are so colorful and pretty especially when adding pieces of fruit and berries as garnish.

I love making these because not only are they thirst-quenching but they’re so easy to make.

Often times I’ll overdo it a little when buying too many berries or too much fruit at the grocery store.

I think oh, I’ll make this recipe or that recipe and then what happens? I run out of time so I end up freezing what I can and then make aguas frescas with the rest.

If I happen to have leftover juices or even coconut milk from a recipe I put them in the aguas frescas too.

To sweeten an agua fresca, simple syrup made with sugar and water can be used. Or even honey or agave nectar would be great too.

In this recipe I used a bit of regular sugar without making simple syrup.

Adding an herb along with the fruit can give an agua fresca a nice pop of flavor. In this recipe I added some mint.

Here are more drink recipes with fruit and herbs you may like “Cherry, Berry and Basil Margarita“, “Honey Citrus and Thyme Tea” and “Blackberry and Oatmeal Malted Smoothie with Mint“.

To make an agua fresca you’ll need a mesh strainer or cheese cloth to strain out the pulp so that the liquid is clear.

Then just serve it in a glass with a lot of ice. Super refreshing.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
