Recipe Notes

*Turninado Sugar is unrefined cane sugar, made from evaporating the liquid from sugar cane leaving a brown, granular sugar with flavor tones of molasses. It is more rustic in appearance and less sweet taste than granulated sugar and was perfect for this recipe. If using granulated sugar, taste the Agua Fresco after 3 tablespoons of sugar before adding more to ensure it does not become overly sweet.
