    cookiedog's Note:

    This agua fresca can be used as a template for any soft fruit: cantaloupe, mango, papaya, pineapple, strawberry, guava... the list goes on and on. Start by mashing the fruit and add water to make 1 gallon. Don't be tempted to throw this in the blender, as the best aguas always have bits of fruit floating throughout. You should make it a little stronger than you think since chilling dulls the flavor and ice will dilute it. Extra agua can be frozen into paletas. Please adjust the sugar to you liking.
