In honor of Valentine’s Day, this month I will be sharing recipes that feature the color red – they’re sure to make your heart skip a beat. As California’s strawberry season kicks off, I encourage you to raise your glass of strawberry agua fresca and say “salud” to amor!
Recipe by Lola
4 cups strawberries (about 15-20) rinsed and hulled
5 cups water divided
½ cup sugar or agave syrup (or to taste)
- Blend strawberries, 4 cups water, and sugar on medium setting for 60 seconds.
- Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into large pitcher. You may need to agitate the mixture to let the juice through, avoid pushing the pulp through to keep juice light in consistency. Discard pulp.
- Stir in remaining 1 cup of water.
- Chill and serve over ice. Garnish with fresh mint or strawberries.
