A non-alcoholic drink from Mexico made tamarind pods. Recipe from Rick Bayless "Authentic Mexican".
The traditional margarita is not the "frozen" version most of us are served at your favorite Mexican restaurant. Instead it is served over a bit of ice. If you have not tried the traditional version you are in for a thirst quenching treat.
The fruit represents the colors of the Mexican flag, red, white and green.
These cool drinks called aguas frescas are made with water, fruit and a sweetener (typically sugar) and are commonly served in Mexico by street vendors in barrel shaped clear jars called a vitrolero. You will also find them in many Mexican takeout restaurants. Aguas frescas are the drink of choice in most Mexican cantinas
