After a seemingly endless winter, I am happy to say that the warm weather has finally arrived in full force here in Indiana!
Needless to say, we're taking full advantage of those warm days and spending time outside when we can. But all that sunshine makes us VERY thirsty...there is nothing more refreshing on a hot day than a delicious cold drink...like an ice cold lemonade or an agua fresca.
What's agua fresca you ask?
I'll be honest, I'd never heard of it myself, so I took to Wikipedia for the definition:
Aguas frescas (Spanish "fresh waters") are a combination of fruits, cereals, flowers, or seeds blended with sugar and water to make light non-alcoholic beverages. They are popular in Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and the United States.
Sounds pretty great right? So, when I was given the chance to review the new Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca, I jumped at the chance! This delicious new drink is inspired by the traditional drink and made with core ingredients such as organic fruit juice, sugar, and a hint of lemon juice.
Unlike many other drinks on the market, with ingredient lists to long to name (if you could even pronounce them), Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca contains only a handful of USDA
Certified Organic ingredients to include organic juice/fruit puree as being the second ingredient to water! They are Non-GMO Project Verified, Gluten-Free, so you can feel great about drinking them yourselves...and sharing with the family!
Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca comes in three delicious varieties- Pomegranate, Mango
Passionfruit, and Grapefruit. For this review, I received the Pomegranate...and I could not wait to try it!
And let me tell you, it was well worth the wait! It was delicious!! So refreshing and truly just the ideal summer drink. I'll admit, I'm usually a lemonade kinda girl... but this may have just converted me! (Though I did receive some Santa Cruz Organic lemonade as well, and it was also delicious!) I love it. The kids loved it! I felt good about the ingredients inside and most importantly the refreshing taste!
If you're looking for a great drink to quench your thirst this summer, Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca is definitely a must try! A 32 oz. bottle of Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca retails for
$3.20 - $3.49 (prices vary by location).
