I love strawberries, 100% completely love them.
So this week I thought I would share with you my favorite drink made from…well, you know… STRAWBERRIES!
Agua de fresa (translated to strawberry water) is a drink made from strawberries, water, and sugar. This drink, which can be made with a variety of fruits, is a delicious and refreshing thirst quencher.
Here is the recipe for your enjoyment:
First, boil water and sugar together (in a ratio of 1 to 1) to create a simple syrup.
While the sugar is dissolving, wash and slice up strawberries (about 2 to 3 cups).
Take the simple syrup off the stove to cool, place sliced strawberries in your blender (tasting a few while you are at it).
Pouring the simple syrup over the strawberries, blend together to create your drink.
Add more sugar, water, or strawberries depending to taste.
Depending on if you like pulp or not, strain your strawberry mixture through a mesh sleeve.
Pour over ice and drink up!
This drink is perfect for a warm day (and I would dare to say that it is even splendid for a rainy day as well).
I HIGHLY recommend making some for yourself, you will not be disappointed!
Go forth and produce something sweet!
