Mexican Strawberry Water (Agua de Fresa)
Fresh fruit waters, or Aguas de Frutas, made with crushed or blended fruit are a common and popular drink all over Mexico. This recipe is extremely flavorful and refreshing, especially when fresh strawberries are in season.
A refreshing change from lemonade. If you don't care for pulp in your drink, feel free to strain the juice before you add it to the water.
Light and refreshing summer drink. Garnish with watermelon slice. Can be made into an adult cocktail by adding a little vodka.
Summer Beer II
Fun to serve in the summer for special gatherings or cocktail parties. Given to me from Dottie, a long time friend and sorority sister. Garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of mint.
Excellent for parties of all kinds (cookouts, bridal showers, etc.) Can also be made with vodka.
Refreshing Watermelon Lemonade Slush
Whenever I have excess seasonal fruit, I freeze it in chunks for fast and easy slushes and smoothies. Here's a delicious way to use up some watermelon.
The Real Mojito
This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.
Vanilla Milkshake I
A very simple recipe for a vanilla milkshake. Add chocolate, berries, peaches or whatever you like. My kids like to add root beer instead of milk.
