Aguas frescas, which translates to “fresh waters” in Spanish, combine a variety of ingredients such as fresh fruit, flowers, seeds and cereals, with sugar and water.

We’ve sung our praises of the book Paletas: Authentic Recipes for Mexican Ice Pops, Shaved Ice & Aguas Frescas by Fany Gerson. She has brought attention to the delicious frozen treats, paletas, of Mexico, and is also showing that nasty, chemical-laden Kool-Aid is not the only sweet treat of the summer.

Even though this recipe uses sugar, which many frown upon, it is open to whichever ingredients suit your diet; whether that is agave syrup, natural fruit sweetness, or no sweetner at all.

Fizzy Orange Cooler Aguas Frescas

  • 2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice, around 7 oranges
  • ⅓ cup sugar, or agave syrup to flaovr (or nothing at all)
  • 2 cups sparkling mineral water

In a pitcher, mix the orange juice and sugar or agave syrup until the sugar has dissolved. Taste and add more sugar or agave syrup as desired for your personal taste. Refrigerate until completely cold. Before serving, add sparkling water.

This is extra delicious if you garnish with mint!
