In Peru, whenever it’s a warm day and you’re having fun under the sun, it´s time for a refreshing cremolada. This Peruvian version of a slushie is made with frozen fruits or simply flavored with a fruit juice. We like to make them with all kinds of nourishing and aromatic tropical fruits, but sometimes you can find boozy alternatives with algarrobina or pisco sour flavors. My favorite place in Lima to have one of these delightful drinks/desserts is Curich, in Miraflores. If you are in the neighborhood by all means go there and don’t miss out on the experience of enjoying one or more of the many fresh flavors they offer on a daily basis.
