Seattle Aguas Frescas to Compliment the Perfect Mexican Food
With each meal there are things that go along with them to make them be “that much better”. There are things that make the experience better and improve everything.
As with every meal that you eat everyday you have to have some type of drink or beverage to go along with it. If it is breakfast usually coffee or juice and maybe even milk. If it’s lunch maybe a cola drink or any other type of pop and for a healthier version some plain bottled water is very good. Dinner is different where you have more time to enjoy it and can incorporate a glass a wine, a margarita, beer or whatever you may be in the mood for.
There is a great way to add tons of flavor to your food that is still healthy and will certainly make your palette so happy you will want to know more recipes and have something ready everyday. They are the Mexican Aguas Frescas. Literal translation “fresh water” but what does this mean. It means it has to be made with fresh water and super fresh fruit. The most popular flavors and more commonly found are horchata which is made with rice and condensed milk. But there are tons like habiscus water, melon water, guava water, pineapple water, whatever your favorite fruit may be.
Peel, cut fruit and put in blender add fresh water and blend. Usually the natural sugar from the fruit is enough for sweetness but you may add a little bit of sugar if you like it a little sweeter. Served with plenty of ice and enjoy.
That is it simple, delicious and fresh. Eating this with Mexican food particularly tastes great because the hotness and all complex flavors of these great dishes simply make the whole experience more whole. Next time you are in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Renton, or Newcastle, ask your Mexican Restaurant waitress or waiter what they have offer you will be pleasantly surprised and bring a lot more joy to your meal.
