Spiked Pineapple Agua Fresca Recipe

Spiked Pineapple Agua Fresca
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Makes: 8 drinks

An agua fresca is nothing more than fruit blended with sugar, water, and a squeeze of citrus; this refreshing drink is served throughout Mexico, at both street carts and restaurants. We decided to replace the water with rum, creating a cocktail that throws you into vacation mode with just one sip.

This recipe was featured as part of our Cinco de Mayo cocktail menu.

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 pounds pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into large chunks
  • 2 cups white rum
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons lime juice (from about 2 medium limes)
  • Ice
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth (you’ll have to do this in batches). Transfer the agua fresca to a large pitcher or punch bowl.
  2. Chill until ready to drink. Serve over ice.
