Agua de Piña:

  • Place pineapple cubes into a blender and blend. Add 2 cups of water to get blender going. You will have to do this in two batches. Run through a sieve to remove pulp and discard. Put juice into a pitcher and add the remaining water.
  • Add 1 cup of simple syrup or as much as you like depending on the sweetness of your pineapple and to your liking.
  • Serve over ice.
