This recipe can be used as a prototype for all aguas frescas. Here it is made with cucumber as the main ingredient, but any number of fruit could be substituted for the cucumber, including watermelon, cantaloupe (rockmelon), papaya (paw paw), strawberry or mango. Adjust the sugar and lime according to your taste, and the amount of water you add according to how strong you like the flavor.
- 1 large cucumber, peeled and cut into large pieces
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup ice
- 3 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
- Juice of 1/4 lemon or 1/2 lime, or to taste
Place the cucumber in a blender, and puree with all of the remaining ingredients until completely smooth.
Serve immediately, garnished with cucumber and lime.
