Just Say Ahhhh!

It's cloudy outside and about to rain so I thought I'd share this drink with ya'll! There is nothing that cheers me up faster than to sip on something sweet in the summertime. How about that for an alliteration?!

I found this drink recipe on Gourmet Sleuth's website and was refreshed instantly.

Aguas Frescas

These cool drinks are made with water, fruit and a sweetener (typically sugar) and are commonly served in Mexico by street vendors in barrel shaped clear jars called a vitrolero.



Fresh fruit such as pineapple, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, strawberries
Granulated white sugar


To make just take any ripe fruit (common flavors include pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon, strawberry and papaya) blend till smooth, add water to thin to a light consistency and sweeten to taste with sugar. Depending on the fruit you may need to strain the mixture to remove any seeds or small bits, the drinks should be the consistency of water (thus the name).
Now if ya'll didn't know this already, is a fabulous website (and they've also got an app for all you iPhone owners out there AllRecipes Dinner Spinner (free!) and I use their App all the time! They also have a list of drinks you have to check out.
We all need a little refresher now and then! If you have any great summer sipping ideas let me know! I'd love to try them :)
