This light and healthy Sparkling Mango Agua Fresca puts a new spin on Latin America's classic drink.
  • 4 cups fresh, diced mango (about 3 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ⅓ to ¾ cups sugar
  • 2 quarts S.Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral Water
  • or your favorite sparkling water, chilled
  • Ice
  • Garnish with slices of lime or mango, if desired
  1. Combine mango, lime juice and ⅓ cup sugar together in a blender or food process and process into a smooth, fine puree. Taste the puree to test for sweetness. If the fruit is tart, you may need to add additional sugar as desired. Pour puree into a pitcher and chill.
  2. When ready to serve, add sparkling water and stir.
  3. Serve in large glasses over ice.
  4. To make individual 12 ounce servings, scoop ice into glasses. Pour ½ cup chilled mango puree over ice. Then, top with 8 ounces of chilled sparkling water.
  5. Garnish if desired.
The amount of sugar used will depend on the ripeness of the mangos. The agua fresca should be light and taste like the essence of the mangos themselves and should not be over powered by the addition of too much sugar.
