Tamarind Agua Fresca

Rating: Unrated
This is another favorite agua fresca drink of mine. The tamarind has a sweet and sour kind of taste to it. You can find tamarind concentrate in most Mexican or Asian markets. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.

Sangrita Fresca (Mexican Sangrita)

Rating: Unrated
Sangrita is a favorite Mexican chaser that is traditionally served alongside a shot of tequila. Serve sangrita at your next party, and guests will be talking about it the next day!

Watermelon Lime Agua Fresca

Rating: Unrated
A very refreshing drink. You may also use cantaloupe or honeydew melon. These taste like the juices served in authentic Mexican restaurants. Serve in tall glasses over ice.

Agua Fresca de Pepino (Cucumber Limeade)

Rating: Unrated
This is another common agua fresca from Mexico. Refreshing, healthy, and delicious! Serve over ice.

Vanessa's Horchata

Rating: Unrated
Just as yummy as taqueria horchata!

Agua de Jamaica (Hibiscus Water)

Rating: Unrated
This drink is served throughout Mexico. It is nice and refreshing. It is similar to a tart cranberry tea drink. You may add more or less sugar to your taste if you prefer. Enjoy!

Licuado de Mango

Rating: Unrated
Every town in Mexico has someone selling this fabulously refreshing drink. Try experimenting with other fruit!

I have been asked by everyone, 'How do you make your margaritas?' Everyone says I make the best. I like them, maybe you will too.

Vampiros Mexicanos (Mexican Vampires)

Rating: Unrated
If you are looking for a real Mexican cocktail, you just found it! This drink combines, in one glass, the best of Mexico: tequila and sangrita (Mexican's favorite tequila chaser). Don't look for cheap tequila; if you like the good stuff, don't be afraid to mix it.

Tequila Sunrise

Rating: Unrated
This pretty drink with layers of orange juice and grenadine is delicious on a hot day. The fact that the ratio of juice to tequila is high makes it a good choice for a brunch cocktail.

Pitcher Perfect Margaritas

Rating: Unrated
After tweaking with several other margarita recipes, I finally found a way to get that 'real' margarita taste in a pitcher size for parties.
