Recipe: Spiked Pineapple Agua Fresca

An agua fresca is as simple as fresh fruit blended with sugar, water, and a squeeze of citrus.  This refreshing drink is served everywhere from street carts to restaurants throughout Mexico. By replacing the water with rum, you can create a cocktail that throws you into vacation mode with just one sip!

You Will Need:
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 (about 2 medium limes)

How To:
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth (it's easiest to do this in batches).  Transfer agua fresca to a large pitcher or punch bowl.  Chill until ready to drink. Serve over ice.
