Lime Agua Fresca Recipe

Esta entrada también está disponible en: Español

Lime Agua Fresca is one of the most popular beverages in Mexico, and it’s very easy to make fast. It’s my brother’s favorite and we used to have it a lot when we were kids. Check out the easy recipe.

Lime Agua Fresca

I remember the first time I made it for my husband here in the USA, he looked at me and said, “Are you blending the whole lime?!” For me it was so natural, but not for him. He became a believer though, once he tried it. He loves it and looks forward to when I make it.

I blend the whole limes for two reasons, firstly, the flavor is delicious and deep. Secondly, you just need 2 limes, which makes it very economical.

Just one word of caution, when you blend the limes, follow my 5 second rule, you don’t want to end up with an agua fresca that’s too bitter. A little bitterness is nice, too bitter, not so much.

Pour 2 cups of water and sugar in the blender. Mix for 15 seconds or until sugar is completely dissolved in the water. This is an important step, if you add the sugar later you will need to stir for a long time.

I wish I had made this today it was super hot, and this looks like the perfect drink to cool down.
