Watermelon Agua Fresca
A few sips of agua fresca [AH-gwah FREHS-kuh] — a mix of fresh fruit juice, water, and citrus — and you’ll be refreshed. In-season watermelon is great for this beverage without being cloying — adjust the amount of sugar based on the fruit’s sweetness.
Purée watermelon, water, mint, and jalapeño in a blender in batches. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve; discard solids.
Whisk sugar and lime juice into watermelon juice. Serve agua fresca over ice.
