What are aguas frescas and how are they different from other drinks?
Aguas frescas are refreshing, fruity drinks that originate from Mexico. Traditionally, they are made by blending fresh fruit with water and sugar, resulting in a sweet and tangy beverage that is perfect for quenching thirst on a hot summer day. Some popular fruits used in aguas frescas include watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, mango, and lime. You can also find aguas frescas made with flowers or grains, such as hibiscus or rice.
In addition to being delicious, aguas frescas are also a healthier alternative to many other sugary drinks, such as soda or juice. By using fresh fruit and controlling the amount of added sugar, you can enjoy a tasty drink without all the extra calories. Aguas frescas are also easy to customize to your own taste preferences - you can adjust the sweetness level or add in additional fruits or flavors as desired.
Overall, aguas frescas are a beloved part of Mexican cuisine and culture, and have gained popularity around the world as a refreshing and flavorful drink option.
