If you drink only one fruity beverage this summer, this Mango Pineapple Aqua Fresca should be it. This refreshing beverage is super easy to make and it is something I crave during the hot summer months. Its non-alcoholic so my kids can enjoy it as well. I will tell you, however, that it is tasty as a cocktail with vodka, rum or tequila.
Speaking of cravings, I am sure my friend Courtney of the blog, Neighborfood, has been having plenty this year as she is due with her first baby soon and this post is part of a virtual baby shower for her. My friend Nancy of Gotta Get Baked organized this fun party for Courtney. Of course an in person baby shower is more fun but since most of us aren’t next door neighbors, a virtual party is the next best thing. I knew I wanted to make this drink for the virtual baby shower since it was a fave drink of mine when I was pregnant with my girls. Courtney is one of the nicest bloggers I know and she makes some amazing recipes. Her gorgeous Roasted Corn and Zucchini salsa is a perfect summer side dish, her Cobb Salad burgers are genius and I could go for a few of these Chocolate Coffee Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches that she made right about now. I could go on and one. Bookmark her blog for many more awesome recipes, you won’t be dissapointed!
I have never really been a big fan of juices because of how sweet they are so I always watered them down or added mineral water to them for a slightly less sweet taste and added fizz. When I first discovered agua fresca years ago at the Fiesta celebration in the town I grew up in I fell in love. Light, fruity and not too sweet. My kind of drink. Even though I had two girls and the old wives tales say girls make you crave sugar that wasn’t the case for me at all. That’s why drinks like agua fresca were perfect for me back then. And still are today. Even my girls love to drink them.
