SAN ANTONIO – Family recipes are used to prepare delicious aguas frescas. Literally, it’s the name of a San Antonio business – Tasty Aguas Frescas.
“We make everything from scratch. We use much of the same recipes as my grandmother. My fiance, he is from Puerto Rico. So he brought a lot of flavors and cultural recipes that his family presented to him. Said Tasty Aguas Frescas owner / operator Johnny Rivers.
And the business got started during the pandemic. They are located at 10646 Gulfdale Street suite 2.
“We were thinking about ways to be creative and use some of our talents,” Rivers said.
A few months after opening, business was booming. And they worked with other locals, letting them advertise their products in their store.
“When we first started selling our aguas frescas, we were immersed in this small community of other small businesses, and a lot of them are just young go-getters like us,” Rivers said.
This has earned them thousands of social media followers. And if you are looking for a drink to suit the season, well, they have something tasty about it.
“I’m just thinking of the peppermint rind and it’s refreshing and it tastes amazing. So we decided to mix that with our horchata. We put a lot of peppermint in it to give it a very, very good flavor. And once we mix everything together it comes out pink and it tastes amazing, “said Rivers.
“My personal favorite… we mixed the horchata and our horchata is made with Mexican vanilla to be precise, because that’s what gives it a really specific flavor,” Rivers said. “Cinnamon, condensed milk. And then we throw in some delicious Snickers. You just get some sort of Snickers frozen drink. “
“There are a lot of delicious Oreo cookies in there. Mix everything together, mix it well. It just comes with a little horchata,” Rivers said.
They use a special pouch and mini gallon wrap so it can stay good for days. And when it comes to serving 210, Rivers said this town is as good as it gets.
“San Antonio is so amazing. It’s a foodie city,” Rivers said. “We have been so lucky that the people who come in contact with our product and our company are loving, grateful and excited about what we have. “
