Agua De Piña Y Fresa – Pineapple And Strawberry Agua

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Agua! Agua! Agua! That’s all I want to do this summer is make beautiful aguas to fill my fridge with. As soon as I feel the heat setting in and I need an instant cool down, I know exactly what will make me happy….. Agua de piña y fresa! The acidic pineapple and sweet strawberry make a beautiful mellow tasting fruity drink that almost taste like a pineapple melon. It’s strange how that happens, but it is a hybrid fruit blessing that I will live by during this Southern California heat wave. Enjoy!
