One advantage I find fasting during the summer months, is the lack of appetite for anything solid. I just feel like gulping down gallons and gallons of water, juice, shakes or anything liquid. And if you can serve it to me slightlychilled, my parched throat will thank you for it.
Today, I share this light, refreshing drink popularized in Mexico. Agua fresca in Spanish means "fresh water" and it is simple and easy to prepare at home with the freshest of summer's bounty.
Agua fresca is a terrific thirst quencher on a hot summer day, but especially during Ramadan. The trick with making agua fresca is to infuse the water with fruit essence without turning it into a smoothie or slushy drink. Feel free to experiment with other soft fruit flavors such as strawberry, mango, papaya, guava, pineapple,cantaloupe and honeydew.
