Friday Happy Hour: Agua de Chaya

Happy hour in Mexico means cervezas and margaritas (and added flab) for most, but on our last visit to Riviera Maya we discovered this nice bikini-friendly alternative. Agua de Chaya is made from the indigenous chaya plant (sometimes referred to as tree spinach), so it’s about as good for you as a libation can be. Ultra-refreshing with a clean, lime infused taste, Agua de Chaya stands in stark contrast to all the syrupy sweetness associated with a poorly produced margarita. As an added bonus, chaya is a good source of protein, vitamins, calcium, and iron; and it’s a rich source of antioxidants. Salud!
