Nestle Aguas Frescas: Horchata

Nestlé USA introduced three aguas frescas-style drinks in select markets across the United States. Based on the traditional Hispanic beverages, Nestlé Aguas Frescas are 100 percent natural and are available in three flavors: Jamaica, made with hibiscus flowers; Tamarindo, which is made from tamarind puree; and Horchata, which is made from rice and cinnamon. Nestlé Aguas Frescas Tamarindo is made with tamarind puree, which is an excellent source of vitamin C, the company says. The company’s Horchata variety is an excellent source of calcium and is available in a 14-ounce bottle, it says. Both Nestlé Aguas Frescas Jamaica and Tamarindo are packaged in 20-ounce bottles for $1.79 to $1.99 and are available in California in Los Angeles, San Francisco/San Jose, Fresno, Sacramento, and San Diego; in Texas in Dallas, Houston, McAllen and San Antonio; Chicago and Phoenix.
