Pineapple Lime Agua Fresca

You might have seen yesterday's Strawberry Lime Agua Fresca recipe.  Today, we have Pineapple Lime Agua Fresca.  Same idea, totally different flavor.
In a lot of drinks, you can get away with using store-bought juice.  Not this one.  One of the best things about an agua fresca is the fact that it tastes like you just took a bite of fruit.  You've got to go fresh on this one.
This recipe is adapted from one I found, by Culinary Explorer, on Yummly.com.  
If you're looking for a tropically delicious, refreshing, cooling beverage, look no further!  This is the one for you!

Pineapple Lime Agua Fresca
Adapted from Culinary Explorer

Simple Syrup -
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water

1 fresh medium pineapple, trimmed
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 cups water

1.  For the Simple Syrup: combine the sugar and water in a small bowl.  Microwave for 20 seconds.  Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

2.  Puree the pineapple.  Strain the juice into a bowl.  You should end up with 2-3 cups of juice.

3.  Stir together the simple syrup, pineapple juice, and lime juice in a pitcher.  Stir in the 2 cups of water.

4.  Pour over plenty of ice.  Serve!
