When we were making the menu for the baby shower, I put agua fresca down on the list. Then, I got made fun of for it.
“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.
They said things like, “Yum, that’s delicious,” and “Mmm, that’s quite refreshing.”
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.
