Did you know that peaches (in Spanish, duraznos) were introduced to South America by Spanish conquistadors in the 15th and 16th centuries? All the way from across the ocean, the peaches adapted well to the soil and climate and have since been used in many creative dishes and drinks. One of these drinks is called “Cremolada de Durazno.” In hot climates, this simple yet refreshing drink is the perfect way to cool down on a warm day. Let’s make it together and practice our Spanish while we’re at it!
