So you know this agua fresca has got to be good for you!
30 cherries (seeds and stems removed)
8 cups water
1 cup dried hibiscus flowers
1 cup sugar
additional 8 cups cold water
Option 1: Hand blender
After 15 minutes, carefully blend the cherries in the pot of water with a hand blender with one to two second pulse actions each time. If you go too fast and push the GO button without stopping every two seconds, it could splatter and burn you or anyone else around you. Take your time blending the cherries if you are using a hand blender!
Option 2: Regular blender
After 15 minutes use a slotted spoon to scoop out the cherries and transfer them to a blender. Pour about one cup of the water from the pot into the blender. Blend well. Return the cherry mixture back into the pot.
How do you like my 90’s style nail polish by the way?
Such a dork, I know.
I’m okay with that.
Pour the strained juice into a large pitcher as you go.
When it has all been strained, add the last 8 cups of cold water to the pitcher, stir well and serve on the rocks.
