Bill Esparza is a James Beard award winning food writer, author of LA Mexicano, and on screen talent for food TV shows like Street Food: USA, Immigrant Kitchen, and Bizarre Foods. He talks with Zarela and Aaron about aquas frescas, his grandmother from Aguas Calientes, and his first taste of Mexico. Later, he discusses how he learned about regional variations in aquas frescas while touring around Mexico as a young musician.
Bill gives Aaron and Zarela examples of regional aquas frescas food pairings, including horchata as the antidote to spicy salsa. The three have a spirited debate on which fruits could NOT work in an aqua fresca, and Aaron shares one of his favorite he's ever done: Honey Dew and Pepino , and his rum-based Horchata cocktail.
