An agua fresca is nothing more than fruit blended with sugar, water, and a squeeze of citrus; this refreshing drink is served throughout Mexico, at both street carts and restaurants alongside Horchatas. We decided to replace the water with rum, creating a cocktail that throws you into vacation mode with just one sip.

This recipe was featured as part of our Cinco de Mayo cocktail menu.
