Ingredients you’ll need

Step by step instructions
Add the peaches and water to your blender and puree until it's smooth. Work in batches if you need to as it's best not to overfill your blender.
Straining the peach agua fresca is optional but highly recommended. You'll end up with a smooth peach juice without all the pulp.
If you plan on serving this at a later time, the pulp and juice will separate. But this can be avoided if you strain it ahead of time.
Taste the agua fresca and add sugar to taste. If your peaches are very sweet, reduce the amount of sweetener. Muddle the herbs before adding to infuse their flavors more.
Serve chilled or over ice and garnish with a slice of peach or lime.
Expert tips & tricks
- Muddling the herbs helps infuse their flavor into the peach agua fresca.
- It’s best to use a medium sieve to strain out the peach pulp. A fine mesh strain would be too fine and may take too long to strain out the juice.
- Freeze a portion of the peach agua fresca in ice cube trays. Add them to the pitcher before serving to keep it cold without diluting the flavor.
- Add fresh pieces of peach in the drinks for an extra treat.
- Rim the glasses with lime zest and sugar for presentation.
- Freeze a portion of the peach agua fresca in an ice cube tray and add them to the pitcher before serving. It will help keep this drink ice cold without diluting the flavor.
