Spiked Pineapple Agua Fresca

where i live in mexico everyone uses a fine plastic mesh sieve to strain the pineapple agua fresca after blending - if you don't, the drink is extremely thick with pineapple pulp. in my house i'm lazy and often i don't strain it, but it means you have to chew with every sip. i can't imagine that would be very desirable in a cocktail.

Need tips on adding fermented foods to diet

you should get this book called Wild Fermentation:

seriously, i just registered for the first time on chowhound JUST to recommend this book to you it is so good. the book is very well written and very very accessible, not hung up on lots of professional equipment and exacting procedures, more like having a good time making your own healthy fermented food and enjoying it.

it has tons of fermentation recipes - drinks, foods, alcohols, all easily made at home, and some vegan tips too (though personally i can't recommend a vegan diet - in any case, fermented foods will at least help.)

good luck! :)

Winnipeg Sangria

where i live in mexico, they make sangria with wine and either orange juice or lemonade. some put the juice in first, wine on top, and it's a pretty parfait layer effect. yum!
