Have you heard of agua fresca? It’s a drink traditionally sold by street vendors throughout Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. This beverage—which is perfect for cooling down on warm days—has recently grown in popularity throughout the U.S. thanks to its refreshing quality.
I have a chance to post an interview with Ereka Vetrini, who will introduce you to the refreshing world of agua fresca, and share a few of her thirst-quenching recipes to get you prepped for spring and summer.
The agua fresca is a healthier alternative to popular cane sugar-filled drinks that won’t make you feel lazy or sluggish. Plus, they’re ideal mixers if you want to give your kids or the party you are hosting a refreshing option.
