Agua de pina y canela

Originally uploaded by suebobdavis.
I had some fresh pineapple chunks and decided to make an agua fresca on the first sunny day after a lot of rain. It turned out light gold and beautiful just like the sun outside.

I had never added spices to an agua fresca before, but I wanted something special, a nice pineapple-upside down kind of flavor.

Just a bit of really good Vietnamese cinnamon did the trick - this was refreshing but had a deeper, warmer flavor than just pineapple.

1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
3 cups cold water
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Whip in a blender until smooth.
