Strawberry pineapple agua fresca for #SundaySupper

Hang out with me long enough and you will learn my love for anything Mexican is strong. Tacos (#TacoTuesday), chips n’ salsa, high quality tequila…I love it all. The first time I visited Mexico in the Spring last year, I fell head over heels in love with the country that I ended up going back again in the Fall with my fiance because I wanted him to experience the wonderful food, culture and people. I’m definitely looking forward to heading back there again in the future!

This was taken just after we arrived in Cozumel at Puerto Maya.

With Cinco de Mayo coming up, I decided to create a refreshing “mocktail” to celebrate the colorful holiday. This drink blends juicy strawberries and pineapple with lime juice, honey and water to create a drink anyone- even the kids, can enjoy. It’s especially tasty on a hot summer day!

An agua fresca is a light, non-alcoholic drink served by street vendors, in bodegas and at eateries throughout Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean, as well as Mexican cafés and taquerias around the U.S. They are made by combining fresh fruits with sugar or another sweetener and water. The best thing about the agua fresca is that you can use any combination of fruit you have at home.

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, my fellow Sunday Supper Taste Makers have created some yummy Mexican-inspired dishes and drinks. Be sure to click through to check them out!
