Looking for an Agua Fresca cookbook


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

There's a couple of "Paletas and Agua Frescas" cookbooks on Amazon.   (This (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) and This (eG-friendly Amazon.com link).  There's an agua fresca recipe book in German and a kid's book in Spanish also.

 

The traditional flavors around here are Horchata (almond,rice,cinnamon), Jamaica (hibiscus), Tamarindo,  Sandia (watermelon),  Pina (pineapple) and my fave Pepino (cucumber lime).   Those books have those and far beyond combos from my quick perusal.

Big deal here too plus I love the traditional glass jar. My favorites are cantaloupe and watermelon. Linked books look pretty good.

I own the Fany Gerson Paletas book that @lemniscate linked to.  I have made most of the paletas recipes and give the book high marks.  The focus is on paletas with 24 recipes, 12 aguas frescas and 11 for shaved ices.  The later may or may not be of interest as cocktail subs. 

 

While I know this is not what you asked for, I listened to an interview with Julia Bainbridge, author of Good Drinks: Alcohol-Free Recipes for When You're Not Drinking for Whatever Reason (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) and thought it sounded pretty good.  You can check out a list of recipes here on Eat Your Books.
