Spanish for “fresh waters,” agua fresca is ubiquitous in Mexico and much of Central America. Commonly sold by street vendors, aqua fresca is a mix of pureed fruit, flowers, or seeds mixed with a little bit of sweetener (if needed), citrus, and water. The result is delicious.

Below is a very basic recipe for a cucumber variety, but go wild experimenting. Hibiscus and tamarind are popular varieties for those taking their game to the next level. otherwise, start by subbing in different fruits.
