Hola, clase. Today we’ll be learning about what to drink with tacos. Can anyone guess the answer?
Si, Jose. Cerveza does go great with carnitas, but we’re talking about something you can have on a school night. Anyone? Anyone?
The correct answer is aguas frescas from Bonadea. Founded by two Mexican muchachos (with business degrees from Stanford), the company offers a healthy bottled version of the authentic bebida. Lightly sweetened with organic blue agave nectar instead of refined sugar, it tastes muy bueno and won’t make you gordo.
Right now the drinks come in two flavors: tamarind and hibiscus flower. Next semester may bring mango, guava, y mucho mas.
Repeat after me: delicioso.
