Aguas Frescas – Valencia Melon and Mint – Mexican Recipe

of freshwater It is a type of traditional Mexican cold drink. It is very popular all year round, but even more popular during the hotter months as it is served chilled with ice. It is a completely natural drink that does not contain any alcohol or artificial ingredients. It’s also very easy to prepare, just add sweetened water to fruit or flower juice, pulp, or infusion and add a little lemon.

Fresh water is not a smoothie or juice. In addition to fruit, you can use cereals, seeds, herbs, vegetables, etc. to add a variety of flavors.

To get creamy fresh water, blend the ingredients rather than straining them. Also, if you want your fresh water to be creamier or thicker, you can use flaxseed water and blend it with fruits and other ingredients.

Preparation of flaxseed water:

Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of flaxseed to 1 1/2 cups of water and boil until the water reaches a slimy, egg-like consistency. Cool to room temperature before use.

No recipe is actually needed, as each person prepares the drink by specifying their preferred water and sugar ratio. But let’s mention one:
