This bubbly agua fresca brings back memories of chilling in Oaxaca’s zocalo, the main square, on a hot day. The zocalo can be a very touristy area, but it is also a meet-up spot for locals to just go and chill. The cafés around this part of town usually offer international things like club sandwiches and grilled chicken breast. However, one very Oaxacan offering that you will find is this sparkling limonada, which goes well with any type of dish. It also hits the spot if you are trying to avoid alcohol for any reason.
In a pitcher, mix the filtered water and sugar and stir until the sugar is mostly dissolved. Add the lime juice and mix.
When ready to serve, add the sparkling water.
Serve over ice.
