Pineapple Water

Agua de Piña

We love to drink aguas frescas, especially pineapple water. It’s refreshing, sweet, and easy to make. Any drink made with fresh fruit and blended with water is known as an agua fresca or agua de fruta in Mexico.

The literal translation of agua fresca is “fresh water” and the translation of agua de fruta is “fruit water.”  This is the type of drink typically served with the midday meal, the comida.
