Pineapple Ginger Agua Fresca

This is a very light and refreshing summer drink found at Epicurious.  If you're trying to get away from soda or other sugary things, this may work for you.  There's only a half a cup of sugar in the whole thing, and you could probably use splenda if you wanted.  My son really loved it.

Here's the recipe:

  • 5 cups 1-inch cubes peeled ripe pineapple (from 1 large pineapple)

  • 4 cups water, divided

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons (or more) grated peeled fresh ginger

  • Ice cubes

  • Puree pineapple, 1 cup water, and sugar in blender in batches until smooth. Pour into 8-cup measuring cup. Mix in 3 cups water and 2 teaspoons ginger. Cover; chill until cold, about 4 hours. Strain pineapple mixture into pitcher, pressing on solids in strainer. Add more ginger to taste. Fill tall glasses with ice. Pour agua fresca over.

  • If you didn't have any ginger I wouldn't sweat it, I really didn't taste it that much.
