How to Make agua de pina

Jevon's third video teaches how to make agua de piña a traditional Mexican drink which is much healthier than Kool-Aid or soda. To make the base, he starts with sugar, water, and pineapple. The pineapple is chopped into 1 inch pieces and put in a large bowl with sugar and water. Then he uses an immersion blender to chop up the pineapple further. Blending the mixture takes quite a bit of time as the pineapple should be shredded quite small. When the blending is complete, the mixture is strained through a sieve. A spoon can be used against the strainer to get as much fruit, juice and pulp into the drink. After straining, he skims off the foam and then stirs it up. Jevon communicates that this process can be used for many other fruits including watermelon and that lemon juice, cream or evaporated milk could be added to create a variety of similar drinks.
