Have you ever looked at cucumbers and thought, mmm these look like they would be an awesome drink? I never did, but then I tried agua de pepino and it was soooo refreshing!

We didn’t grow up drinking this drink, but the first time I tasted agua de pepino I was hooked. With the combination of lime and sugar it tastes more like limeade. Super yummy, super refreshing. Oh, and did I mention easy?

Do you remember the tamalada we had in El Paso? While we were there we shopped frequently at Vista Market for groceries and that store was truly awesome. It was like walking into a mercado in Mexico. I really wish there was a store like this in Colorado.

Anyway, they had all sorts of aguas frescas to choose from. While we were in El Paso I think we each drank two huge glasses of agua de pepino daily while cooking in the kitchen. It’s the perfect drink on a hot day or while eating a spicy meal

If you like agua de pepino you’re going to love these grown up cucumber cocktails:
