Watermelon agua fresca
This was by far the best new drink on the new menu. If it doesn't find its way to every Chipotle location, I'll be sad for the burrito-eating public. The ingredients are minimal: watermelon pulp, water, lime juice, and cane sugar. Drinking it feels like taking your taste buds to a water(melon) park and allowing them to frolic there for a bit. Now, if it only had booze in it...
Agua de Jamaica and black tea
Organically grown by In Pursuit of Tea, the agua de Jamaica tea is a blend of hibiscus flowers, rooibos tea, and lemongrass. You can just call it hibiscus tea if you don't feel confident pronouncing the phrase "agua de Jamaica." It's a traditional Mexican drink, and even though I only planned on taking a few sips, I kept going back for more.
"One of the unique things about hibiscus is that it has its own acidity, its own structure," Betts said. "When you drink it, it makes your mouth water, it makes your belly rumble, it makes you want to drink more, and it makes you want to eat more." Perhaps this tea should come with a warning label that it's addictive. The black tea tasted unsweetened and was smooth enough, but the hibiscus was the real showstopper.
