Spring means more fresh produce which always signifies the end of winter for me. I love heading to a farmers market, grocery store or even a fruit stand to see what quality is like.I am so in love with creating new beverage recipes. Seriously just ask my husband. When the weekend gets near, I head to the store to see what fresh fruit and herbs are readily available. Then I create drink menus around the fresh produce. We hope that you love out Cantaloupe Agua Fresca Drink Recipe.

If you struggle to find a use for cantaloupe when it’s at its peak ripeness (grocery stores tend to put them on discount when they’re ripest and flood the produce department), this recipe is best when made with the sweetest cantaloupe you can find. Depending on the ripeness of your fruit, you may need more or less sweetness in the form of sugar in this recipe.

TIP: If you find yourself needing your beverage sweeter, keep some Stirrings Simple Cane Sugar Cocktail Syrup on hand. We always have a bottle in the refrigerator for drinks. This is the easiest way to add real sugar to cold drink. It is great to sweeten cold iced tea as well.
