Fun CPG Facts: The Origins of Aguas Fresca

June 27, 2023

For Mexicans, aguas frescas hold the power to evoke emotions, to ignite a sense of pride in their heritage, and to preserve the traditions that have been passed down through generations. With every sip, they honor the craftsmanship and dedication of those who have perfected the art of creating these liquid marvels.

Aguas frescas are a taste of Mexico's soul—a testament to the unwavering resilience, vibrant creativity, and unbreakable spirit of its people. In every glass, they find a reminder of the richness that lies within their hearts and the unique tapestry that unites them.

Ancient Deliciousness

Centuries ago, artisans craftily birthed these elixirs in ancient Mexico, meticulously pressing the essence of fruits and infusing them with the purest water. Like an ode to their deep connection with the land and their reverence for the gifts it bestows, these drinks emerged as a testament to their ingenuity and creativity.

Simple Deliciousness

These delightfully simple drinks were originally made by infusing ripe local fruits such as strawberries, mangoes, and lime into water. While made much the same in modern times, the varieties available to the world today seem endless; from tamarind to lemon chia. 


The drink embodies a sense of unity and community. In bustling markets and lively gatherings, these refreshing elixirs become the catalysts for laughter, conversations, and the forging of lasting connections. They are shared among families, friends, and strangers alike.
