Agua Fresca

In Mexico, an Agua Fresca is a combination of fresh fruit juice, sugar, water and ice, sometimes fortified with tequila. This delicious rum-based version is one of several Agua Frescas made at Isla, a new Latin restaurant in downtown Manhattan. The fruit purees can be made in blender or a juicer. Cocktail Party Recipes
