Strawberry Agua Fresca

Serve this refreshing strawberry drink at your next summer get-together

One of the best things about summer is the fresh ingredients that you can just pluck straight from the earth. But what is to come of the strawberries that have sat around a day or two too long or that linger at the end of the season after you have eaten berries daily? This refreshing Mexican drink uses those less-than-perfect fruits in a way that lets them shine.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 3 to 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups very cold water
  • Juice of two limes (about 1/4 cup)
  • Lime slices

Method

Purée the strawberries and the sugar in a food processor until the mixture is completely smooth.

In a medium bowl, strain the purée through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the seeds.

Add in the water and some of the lime juice, stir and adjust to taste.

Fill four glasses with ice, pour in the agua fresca, garnish with a slice of lime and serve.

Serves 4.
