Agua de Fresa

final

It. Is. Hot.  I love sunny, warm days.  It just feels good.  And when the day starts to feel unbearable I know it is time to chug down a coooold drink.  In Mexico that translates to Agua de Fresa (strawberry).  The great thing about strawberries are-well everything.  They have that balance of sweet and tart; they scream “Warm weather!” and they go with practically everything.  Agua Frescas are generally served with meals or as a refreshing way to cool down on a hot day.  So grab a good book, sit outside and drink away.  You don’t have to tell me twice!

WHAT YOU NEED:

– 1 lb. of strawberries, rinsed and chopped;
-2-4 cups of water;
– sugar (to taste);
