Traditionally, authentic agua frescas are made without blenders by simply mashing fruit with a fork or masher before adding water. We’ve taken the liberty of using a blender for an ultra-light, refreshing rendition of this traditional Mexican drink. In the spring and summer, we use fresh strawberries and a few ice cubes in lieu of the frozen ones for ultimate freshness.
