Spicy Honeydew and Coconut Water Agua Fresca

[Photograph: Autumn Giles]

The cooling flavors of the melon and coconut get a little kick from homemade chile de arbol simple syrup in this agua fresca.

Note: Use a colander lined with a double layer of cheesecloth to strain the honeydew. That way, you can easily pick up the cheesecloth and squeeze out any remaining liquid.
