This thirst-quenching beverage, Spanish for fresh water, is a wonderful addition to any informal country inn menu.


  • 2 cups peeled, seeded and diced ripe fruit such as melon, pineapple, mango and/or papaya
  • 2 1/2 cups water, preferably filtered
  • 3 tablespoons sugar


In a blender or a food processor fitted with the metal blade, combine the fruit, water and sugar. Process on high speed until completely smooth, about 1 minute.

Pass through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing with the back of a spoon to extract as much juice as possible. Chill thoroughly before serving.
