Robyn Youkilis’ recipe for pineapple tepache is perfect for hot summer days. She says: “Pineapple tepache is essentially a fermented agua fresca popular in Mexico and South America. This drink is lovely on its own but also makes a special base for upgraded cocktails (and mocktails!).
“My favourite way to enjoy this drink is to use it to flavour plain sparkling water (about a 1-to-3 ratio of tepache to water).”
- Pineapple 1
- Sweetener of choice 1/2 to 1 cup, coconut sugar works well!
- fresh ginger 1 inch piece, peeled and sliced
- Filtered water
