Drink local and fresh with homemade agua fresca: the "fresh water" drink popular in Mexico. This version uses just watermelon, lime juice, and mint. This healthy alternative to sodas or powdered drink mixes also makes quick work of extra watermelon. Spike it with vodka or rum if the spirits move you.
