Do you Zumbida?
Have you ever been to a Mexican restaurant and asked for an agua fresca? Do you know what an agua fresca is? Aguas frescas are a combination of fruits, cereals, flowers, or seeds blended with sugar and water. It is different and not alcoholic. My two favorites are Agua de Tamarindo and Horchata. Horchata is made different in El Salvador and Mexico. They are both refreshing.
Introducing Zumbida, an aguas frescas-inspired drink with subtle carbonation and fruit flavored sweetness with a touch of alcohol. This is not a remake of aguas frescas. Zumbida is a drink inspired by the Mexican tradition of making natural fruit and flower flavored waters but with a kick everyone can enjoy regardless of their familiarity with aguas frescas.
I like the twist Zumbida brings. My husband was watching football and asked me for a drink, so I passed him a Zumbida. He took a sip, and I waited to see what his reaction was going to be. He liked it. That made two of us. The agua fresca with a kick!
Mango is the first flavor released. I can't wait for them to released more flavors. Zumbida is currently only available in California, Texas, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and Denver.
