Mango Agua Fresca {plus 20 great Cinco de Mayo favorites}

Agua fresca is Spanish for “fresh water”.  All you need is fruit and a little agave or honey for a simple, healthy, and delicious change from soda!  You have to love the pure simplicity.  The secret is to just infuse water with fruit essence without turning it into a smoothie or slushy.

This light and refreshing drink popularized in Central America is perfect for your Cinco de Mayo celebration, or as a cool, all-natural drink to sip by the pool on hot summer days.
