Oh, how we love fresh waters to drink.
You will frequently find Aguas for sale in large glass jars with big scoops most anywhere in Mexico.
We carry a couple in our restaurant, usually agua de horchata (rice water) and a fruit or Hibiscus.
So refreshing. To go with any meal, pick a fruit, most any fruit. Strawberries, limes, lemons, pineapple, mangos, watermelon, muskmelon.
I added a half cup of sugar and a bunch of water. It really is according to your taste, so for me to tell you 6 cups water would be winging it. That's what it is, anyway, about 6 cups. Give or take.
Add ice, enjoy with your Gorditas. Or tacos. Or burritos.
For this task, I have hand squeezed--not that I recommend it, my squeezer broke--a bunch of limes. They are inexpensive and impressive.
That was a workout. My fingers now have biceps.
I'm recycling this jar. It's so handy. I like it's size but I like cane sugar better.
1/2 cup sugar.
