Blueberry agua fresca is a thing of beauty on a hot summer day!
Recently, a reader asked me on facebook if I had any recipes for Agua Fresca, and I was sad to realize I did not. This drink is absolutely and completely delicious and refreshing… and I love it!
That’s one of the things I love about social media. I get to talk to so many people about so many things, and inevitably, you all keep me on my toes in the food department! I mean, I could have gone an entire lifetime never knowing about this marvelous beverage if it wasn’t for social media. What an awful shame that would have been!
This stuff is absolutely perfect for a hot summer day. Pour it over a tall glass of ice, sit back and let the cool refreshing flavors tone down the intensity of all that persistent summer heat.
