If you can’t already tell I’m slightly obsessed with agua frescas right now.

They’re so refreshing and too easy to make so why not enjoy as many I can?

I’m trying to get out as many as I can now so you can enjoy them all this Summer!

Like my other agua fresca recipes this agua de limon would also be a great beverage to serve this Cinco de Mayo.

You can even turn this into an adult beverage if you want to.

I like mine with a little bit of rum.

This recipe is super easy and quick to make.

There is no juicing involved in this recipe.

I let my blender do all the work.

However you have to be careful not to blend it too long or the agua will end up really bitter.

All I do is quarter the limes and blend them with some water.

I literally only blend for like two seconds.

I only make a small amount because it gets bitter if not consumed the same day it’s made.

If you decide to serve this for a get together just make sure to make it right before serving.

It will stay good for a few hours but tends to get bitter the longer it sits.

But it’s so easy to make it won’t be a hassle at all if you end up having to make more.

I really hope you enjoy this recipe.
