I can still remember summers as a kid. The Texas sun beamin' on my face. Daddy worked nights so summers were especially fun when we'd get to lounge around the house with him all day. Every so often we'd convince him to take us to a local fast food joint. He never much cared for Tex-Mex. How he survived in Texas all those years I'll never know. But, the local Tex-Mex joint was always our jam. Daddy, never complained and always obliged with a smile. Guess, it was the parent in him.
On days it was far to hot to live or exist in Texas we'd be more excited than usual. The local fast food stop had an array of agua fresca choices to chose from. We'd beg and plead till Daddy shook his head and caved.
Even now as an adult I haven't quite grown out of my love for a good agua fresca on a warm Texas day. These days made even better by my love for fresh Texas ingredients.
Scarletts Texas Red Grapefruit for sponsorin' this post.
1. Squeeze your grapefruits until you have 4 cups worth. I squeezed mine by hand but if you have juicer that works as well. It's ok to get a little pulp. A little pulp never hurt anyone.
2. Squeeze in the two limes and stir
3. Add ice to a few glasses. Pour the grapefruit drink and then add sparkin' water to your likin' per glass. I added about 1/4 per glass.
