Pineapple Lime Ginger Agua Fresca

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

If summer won’t come to me I’m just going straight to it with this refreshing tropical fruit-infused water, tequila optional.

This drink is inspired by Berrybrook Farms, a cute little natural foods store in Dilworth with a made-to-order cafe and juice bar inside. My favorite drink on the menu is a blend of pineapple, ginger, cinnamon, lime and honey. I truly feel invincible when I’m drinking it, like I’m doing my body a favor. My least favorite thing, however, is paying $5 for it so now I just make it at home.

I’ll be the first to admit I don’t really know exactly what an agua fresca is but that’s what I kept saying in my head when I drank this. Make no mistake this is definitely not a thick creamy smoothie so a differentiator was necessary, and Wikipedia’s definition of “ fruitscerealsflowers, or seeds blended with sugar and water to make light non-alcoholic beverages” sounds about right.

  4. I do something similar with the TIU Bombshell Spell (we just call them Bombshells in my house – my fiance drinks one, straight, every morning). However I can’t handle all that sickly-sweet liquid straight, so I add one Bombshell to a quart jar with ice, and fill it up with seltzer. Nothing froths like pineapple juice! Yum.
