Aguas Frescas


 For Cinco De Mayo this year, I treated myself to homemade Aguas Frescas.  I went out to dinner with one of my friends, Nicole, and she told me about a Cantaloupe Aguas Frescas that she saw being made at a mexican restaurant in LA.  She was surprised how simple Aguas Frescas is to make.  I immediately needed to make my own refreshing version.  

 Aguas Frescas means "Fruit Water" and the translation is not kidding.  Blend fruit, water, a little sugar and lemon juice until smooth.  Strain if you want, however I like mine with some texture.  I decided to make two Aguas Frescas versions:  Watermelon-Strawberry and Cantaloupe.

I would post a recipe, however its so simple that I think I'll just provide some guidelines:

Pick a Fruit (some work better than others - be sure to chill)
Cut your chilled fruit up and add to a blender (I used about 4 Cups of Fruit)
Add about a tablespoon of sugar or more to taste 
Add Juice from 1/2 Lemon
Blend and add about 1/2 Cup Water as it's running (I used less for Watermelon-Strawberry and more for Cantaloupe)

Enjoy!
