Strawberry-Honey Agua Fresca

NancyC

While thumbing through a summer issue of Real Simple magazine the other day, I found a little note about Agua Fresca and how you could blend watermelon, cucumber, or cantaloupe with lime juice and a little sugar, then strain and serve over ice. That reminded me of an Agua Fresca recipe I made a few years back. It’s made a little differently–I used strawberries and didn’t strain it. I also used honey instead of sugar. 

If you’re not familiar with Agua Fresca, it’s Spanish for “fresh water” and is a type of fruit drink that is served all over Mexico. Made from a combination of fruits, sugar, and water blended together, it’s a refreshing drink for spring and summer. I prefer using honey instead of sugar myself, but you can use either!
