This one came from a glut of mandarins at home – we bought a bag two weeks in a row and were a little slow in eating them, ending up with a surplus that had to be used quickly.
Using the basic agua fresca approach detailed at, the ingredients were simply  mandarins, water, agave syrup, lime Рand I try to have limes around whenever I can.

Too nice to have alone, this is a recipe for 2.


  • Reserve 2 mandarin segments as a garnish
  • 4 medium mandarins – enough to make 2 cupfuls
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tspn agave syrup
  • 1 lime, juiced


  1. Blend the fruit, water and sweetener
  2. Sieve, if it looks too pulpy (I didn’t)
  3. Test for sweetness first and adjust if necessary
  4. Server over ice.

I used the glass I was serving in, as the measure for how many mandarins were required.
