Dudes, it is HOT in the district. Hottest place in the country this past week, apparently.
Time to cool out, for real. In your heat-induced languor, this is still easy to put together. Your taste buds will thank you.

Click to listen: Carlos Vives – “Fruta Fresca”
- 4 cups watermelon
- 1/4 or 1/2 of a cucumber (I recommend peeling it, for the sake of both color and flavor)
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 cup water
- Sugar to taste (optional; I added a few drops of stevia)
- Put it in a blender.
- Pour into a glass (or pitcher, and add rum/vodka/etc., if it’s that kind of party).
- Garnish with mint leaves, lime wedge, or cucumber slice. If you’re fancy.
