SAN ANTONIO — There’s nothing fairly like that Texas warmth to dehydrate you and it is that point of year once more the place the solar is out and beaming. But, one agua frescas business at the Alamo Heights Farmer Market and Select 210 Market and is quenching all that thirst. 

Viva La Calle is serving up over 40 different flavors of agua frescas. So, what’s an agua fresca and the way is it made? 

“Agua frescas is basically the fruit. We juice it and then we take out the pulp and serve it in a drink,” Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Ramirez, the proprietor of Viva La Calle mentioned. “So it’s all natural.” 

Ramirez got here from Mexico 5 years in the past and seen the shortage of agua frescas in San Antonio. 

“I moved to San Antonio about five years ago. I knew there was a demand for agua frescas {and} since I’m native from Mexico, I was like okay this could be a good idea,” Ramirez mentioned. “And little by little it worked and now we have customers are coming.”

He took the leap of religion and began his business small, usually instances carrying all of his gear in his small automotive.

“We started the business three years ago and we literally started from nothing. I had a small car, I would carry all the buckets there, my table, my setup, my canopy and that’s how I started the business,” Ramirez mentioned.

But because the business grew, so did the demand for more room. Ramirez mentioned he could not afford a brand new trailer, so he took issues into his personal fingers, purchased an previous trailer and renovated it. He says he did such a superb job that individuals ask him if he renovates trailers as a business.

“I found the trailer for cheap and I was like I’ll just remodel it and make it look my own style and it worked,” Ramirez mentioned.

They even have espresso choices like a vegan horchata latte and a restaurant de olla. Ramirez mentioned they’re one of the one locations in San Antonio that has a vegan horchata latte, “A lot of people come just for the coffee,” Ramirez added. 

Ramirez encourages everybody to come strive them out. If you are unsure what to get, they’re all the time giving samples. If you desire a larger amount, you can even purchase the drinks by the bottle for $16. When you deliver these bottles again, you get half-priced refills, Ramirez mentioned.
