Notes

To strain or not to strain: Traditional agua frescas are served with the pulp. You can choose to strain or not, either will result in a delicious taste, although I recommend straining if you’re unfamiliar with the pulp-y texture.
Using old-ish pineapple chunks: This pineapple water recipe is a great way to use up cubed pineapple about to be out of its prime!
Storage Directions: Store leftovers in the fridge for 2-3 days at most, or the pineapple will begin to ferment and create another popular Mexican beverage called Tepache!
