"What is Agua Fresca?" (read that in a condescending, mocking tone), "Isn't regular water good enough?"
But, I made it anyway and everyone loved it. Including the ones that were practicing their condescending/mocking voices earlier in the day.
And the fact is that 'regular water' is enough, but infused water is better. And, since it takes pretty much zero effort, you might as well class it up a little bit next time you're inviting people into your home.
Even if you just make it for yourself if you're trying to drink more water, it's still good and it's still almost effortless. So just do it.

Then, I got worried that maybe they stopped making them, but luckily Wikipedia told me, they were still in production. It was actually the first thing that popped up when I Googled it, so I guess the panic hits a lot of people.
The nice thing is that these little guys take about as long to make as it would take you to drive to the grocery store.
Both layers are super light and fluffy. Neither is too sweet or too rich. It will easily satisfy any sweet cravings you get!

But they're also kind of sad.
If I'm being totally honest with you, I didn't actually make this. My mom did. But since my mom is a real person and not a Pinterest liar, I think you can still trust that it is doable.
Also, when you're hosting a baby shower, it's pretty much a must. Every. Single. Guest will comment on it and say how amazing you are as a hostess. Promise.

My cheeks will get flushed and my temples will start to throb whether I have a couple sips or if I down a bottle. So, don't try to tell me I just drank too much.
After that little rant there, you're probably wondering why I even made a sangria then.
Good point. It's mostly because it was being served to other people at a baby shower and it's partly because I really want to drink it without getting sick/embarrassed (red cheeks thing).
Also, for some reason, the wine sucks all the color out of the strawberries so it turns this nice pink color :)

But food in shot glasses? Adorbs.
What I don't like about hummus is that everyone reaches into the same bowl with their veggie sticks or pitas or whatever. It takes about 6 seconds for that nice little swirl of hummus to be destroyed and then it looks completely unappetizing.
So, put a little dollop in a shot glass, drop your veggie sticks into it and problem solved! Everyone gets to eat it and no one has to share or wonder which kid poked their finger into the bowl!
