Cucumber and Pink Lady Apple aqua fresca

With summer approaching (though not fast, as it is raining as I write this!) refreshing is going to be the word on everybody's mind. This is something you could take to a picinic, barbeque, serve with burgers or tacos and best of all? If you wanted to, you could easily make it a cocktail!

This recipe is adapted from the Watermelon Aqua Fresca in Amor Y Tacos, with only the fruits being changed. It's really a great recipe and really you are only limited by your imagination on this one. Fruit: it's what you're drinking!

2 cups (mixed) cucumber and pink lady apple
3 cups water
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon sugar (or more if you need it a bit sweeter)

Mash the fruit to a pulp. (I used a hammer. Yes. I really did.) Stir in water, lime, juice, sweetener. Chill and serve.

We had this with potato tacos and fresh pico de gallo. It was wonderful.

  1. I'm thinking maybe club soda -- or touch of flavored vodka :)-- could be nice too. One nice day after a month of rain and I'm ready for summer!
