Watermelon-Mint Agua Fresca
Few things are more refreshing on a hot summer day than a slice of chilled watermelon. Except, perhaps, if you blend it, chill it, and sweeten it with a mint-infused syrup. Served over ice with a healthy dose of perky lime juice, this “fresh water” will have you feeling like you just got watered like a plant. You can also make it with honeydew or cantaloupe. Adjust the sweetness to your liking depending on the ripeness of the fruit. Guaranteed to sooth heat-tingling tongues, serve this cooler alongside spicy salsas, tacos, or other chile-smothered dishes.
