You Will Need
To make the Jalapeño Simple Syrup: Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and heat to a simmer, stirring or swirling until sugar is dissolved. Add halved jalapeños and simmer, covered, for an additional 5 mins. Remove from heat and allow jalapeños to steep in syrup until cooled, about 10 mins. Remove peppers before using syrup (and put them to use in your favorite salsa recipe — or top off some tacos!).
To make the Agua Fresca: Add watermelon, coconut water and cooled simple syrup (start with 1/4 cup) to a blender and process until very smooth and frothy, about 30 seconds. Taste for spice and add more syrup, if necessary. Serve immediately over ice with a squeeze of lime and a stripey straw. Or, cover and chill for up to a day, stirring before serving. Enjoy!
