Pina y Pepino Margarita

Sipping Saturday 

This week’s margarita is inspired from my weekly grocery runs.  Located directly between the fresh fruit and vegetables a stall devoted to agua frescas (fresh water made from fruit) greets me every week.  Vitroleros (huge, beehive shaped glass jars) line the stall bursting at the seam with a rainbow of colors that make me weak in the knees.  Instantly my tunnel vision sets in and I make my way over attempting to select my agua fresca from the endless selection.

This week I spotted pina and pepino (pineapple and cucumber). I couldn’t resist.  A cooling, cleansing flavor with a hint of lemon.  I shopped, sipped and loaded my truck enjoying my agua.  Enjoy!  

             

I use a juicer to produce my fresh juice, but you can easily use your blender.  Add the fruit and only enough water to help the fruit move along.  If you add too much water the agua will be foamy and loose much of it’s flavor.  Peel and remove cucumber seeds or blend and strain.
