Celebrate Mexican culture this month, Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for the 5th of May), by preparing a pitcher of “agua fresca” (fresh water). This drink is sold by street vendors in Mexico and throughout Latin America. The ice-cold drinks are made by combining a combination of fresh fruits, grains, seeds, herbs and spices.
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 16 oz. fresh strawberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- juice of 1 fresh lime
In a blender, combine all 4 ingredients. Blend until smooth. Chill before serving. Garnish with lime slices.
