Agua De Fresa Y Pepino – Cucumber Strawberry Water

Now that summer is here in full swing, my collection of agua recipes will come out in full force. Two powerful entities trying to battle out one another. I combat the heat with agua, and so far it seems to be working. This refreshing agua in particular is a dazzling one. The combo of strawberry and cucumber work extremely well together. I think cucumber works well with almost any fruit. Pour it over ice and you’ll be able to face any heat wave with agua in hand. Enjoy!
