Aguas frescas

California, Food & Drink

It's a chilly, gray day today in New York City, but this beautiful shot of aguas frescas by Long Beach-based food photographer Matt Armendariz is just what I need to get me excited for warmer weather. Agua fresca is a refreshing fruit drink popular throughout Mexico, and it's simply made by blending fruit with water, a bit of sugar, and a little lime juice. Wouldn't an aguas frescas beverage station, complete with gorgeous glass urns and pitchers filled with different flavors, be a wonderful addition to your cocktail hour?
