Praise For…

"Ericka Sanchez’s love and reverie for her time spent in Mexico stirring up mixtures for aguas frescas and paletas in her grandmother’s kitchen as a child is infused in every recipe in Aguas Frescas & Paletas. She beautifully interprets the classics that were a fixture in my family’s home growing up in Mexico and gives us delicious twists from her extensive knowledge of the ingredients of Mexico and California. Ericka shows yet another way Mexicans enrich the American table with this book."
—Pati Jinich, Chef, cookbook author and host of PBS's Pati's Mexican Table

"I love fruits in all their forms, and I love Agua Frescas & Paletas. Besides including delicious traditional recipes, Ericka Sanchez created some exciting modern twists like a Green Prickly Pear and Spinach Cooler and Avocado Coconut Pops. Add to that the colorful and vivid imagery, and you are left con la boca hecha agua."
—Delia Annette León, author and culinary talent manager

"Agua Frescas & Paletas instantly took me back to my childhood. The emotional and sensory connection of holding a paleta or sipping on an agua fresca is undeniable. I love Ericka Sanchez's fresh take on it, so fun and grown up. This book will definitely appeal to your playful inner child."
—Ingrid Hoffmann, celebrity chef and author
