Today is Mexican Mother’s Day and what better way to celebrate our dear sweet madres than with a homemade meal made with lots of love?
One morning, I had an abundance of citrus fruit and couldn’t bear the thought of it going bad. As necessity is the mother of invention, I created this delicious agua fresca – it’s the perfect balance of sweet and tangy! Now, I invite you to get creative in your own kitchen and try something new this weekend in honor of your mother.
7 blood oranges freshly squeezed
7 Valencia oranges (the best for juicing) freshly squeezed
1 lemon (I prefer Eureka lemons – the ones with thick skin) freshly squeezed
4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
- Combine all three juices, water, and sugar. Stir very well.
- Chill and serve over plenty of ice.
