Refreshing and hydrating, Agua Fresca means fruity water. These beautiful drinks are great at a party, and they can help you use up any fruit that you won’t be able to eat before it goes off. This is certainly not the master recipe, just a good starting point for your own creativity.
John, the reader who introduced me to the silky magic of this avocado milkshake, lives in California, where avocados are often less than a dollar. If you can find a similar deal, whip up a batch of these! If your avocado isn’t quite ripe, a bit more lime juice will bring out the flavor.
These shakes are even better if you use “coconut milk beverage,” almond milk, or rice milk instead of regular milk. Each adds a little of its own flavor to the drink.
This grapefruit and ginger drink is my Mimosa replacement. Orange juice with seltzer is a very nice drink, but I wanted something a little more interesting and flavorful. This drink uses the ginger syrup from the homemade ginger ale recipe so be sure you make that first as it takes the longest. Once you have the syrup it’s as simple as adding the grapefruit juice and seltzer. Yum! See the full post with recipe links here.
