Agua de Fresa Colada {Strawberry Colada}

If you like Piña Coladas, then you're going to love Fresa Coladas.  Slightly tart Agua de Fresa sweetened with creamy sweetened condensed milk.  And if you're looking for a more adult version, add a shot of rum to each glass before serving.  Yum, yum, yummmmm!

Fresa Colada

Ingredients:

  • 3 to 4 cups strawberries, stems removed
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 (14oz. can) sweetened condensed milk
  • Ice
  • Rum (optional)


Directions:
Slice enough strawberries to equal one cup; set aside.



Puree the remaining strawberries in a blender with 4 cups of water until smooth.



Strain the pureed mixture into a 2-quart pitcher.



Pour in the can of sweetened condensed milk.  Pour in enough water to fill the pitcher.  Stir well to combine.



Add the slice strawberries and stir gently.



Serve with lots of ice.  And if you're looking for a more grown-up cocktail, add a shot of rum to each glass!  Enjoy!!!



With Love,
