  • Summary

    Sold at Mexican street stands in large, clear barrels—the better to show off their festive colors—agua frescas, or "fresh waters," can be made with all kinds of fruits and herbs, the riper the better. Here, Feniger tops a traditional cantaloupe cooler with a decorative swirl of vivid beet purée. Roasting the beet heightens its sweetness and intensifies its color.

    Ingredients

    • 1 small red beet (1/4 pound), scrubbed
    • 1 (6-pound) ripe cantaloupe, peeled, seeded, and chopped (12 cups)
    • 4 cups cold water, divided
    • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    • 1/4 to 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
