YELLOW NECTARINE, BLOOD ORANGE, MINT, AND SERRANO CHILI AGUA FRESCA
Sweet, tart, and a little spicy, this refreshing fresca is perfect dressed up as a cocktail or dressed down as an easy summer drink. Mix up the flavors with white nectarines, peaches, or any type of orange you like.
8 yellow nectarines, sliced
2 blood oranges, peeled and sliced
10 mint leaves
1 serrano chili, split and deseeded
1 lime, juiced
3 tablespoons agave nectar
Water (to taste)
In a blender, combine the nectarines, oranges, mint, and chili. Puree until completely smooth (adding water if you need it to blend). Strain it and add lime juice and agave to taste. Serve in a pitcher with sliced serrano and orange, and a few sprigs of mint. Enjoy!
