Aguapanela con Limón (Sugarcane Lime Drink)

Aguapanela con Limón (Sugarcane Lime Drink)

There are few things as refreshing as ice-cold glass of aguapanela con limón on a hot summer day.  What is aguapanela, you ask? Besides being one of my husband’s favorite drinks, it’s a Colombian specialty that’s a cinch to make, and super satisfying.  Panela (also known as piloncillo in Mexico) is unrefined sugarcane that is sold in blocks or cones.  It’s made by boiling sugarcane juice and pouring it into molds, where it hardens into solid blocks. If you like brown sugar, you will absolutely love panela.  It’s got a much richer molasses flavor, and tastes just like biting into a stalk of fresh sugarcane.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz brick of panela
  • 3-4 cups of water
  • 3-4 cups of ice
  • 3-4 limes, juiced
