Note: This recipe appears in the New Sonoma Cookbook. This is such a refreshing drink when you want to cleanse your palate. An agua fresca is Spanish for fresh water and it's a fresh fruit drink that hails from Mexico. This version is quite the standout because you can taste the combination of pineapple, cinnamon and cucumber. Don't forget to peel the cucumber and remove the seeds fro mteh cucumber because the seeds can taste very bitter and you want a sweet drink. The agave nectar syrup acts as a sugar substitute and can be very sweet with the pineapple. If you want to add some fizz to your drink, use sparkling or seltzer water to the drink when serving. The seltzer water will wake up your taste buds and be very refreshing.
