Aguas Frescas

I made this drink today from fresh strawberries we picked up from the Strawberry Street Festival near our house. The strawberries were very ripe and I was worried they wouldn't last until tomorrow. So, I washed and hulled them. Then, I pureed them in the blender. I added a little fresh lemon juice and simple syrup to taste. Before drinking, I chilled it. It's like drinking strawberries, except better! You can make this drink with any fresh fruit that's in season that will puree into a drinkable liquid.

Speaking of strawberries and other goodies in season, I was wondering if you might lend a typing hand to help us help the 17th Street Farmers Market. For the whole (but brief) story, please read our petition at If you find you agree with us (or just don't object strongly), we'd be much obliged if you would post the petition to your blog.

C U @ 17!
