Juicy water

Nuestra agua del campo, Cielito Lindo

I always choose aguas frescas when they’re available, and Cielito Lindo has my new favorite. Called nuestra agua del campo (our country water), the drink includes fresh pineapple, celery and parsley that’s not overly sweet, but quite refreshing. In the glass, the blend appears as a lovely pale green. You can order it alone at $4 for 20 ounces, but it’s so much better with the restaurant’s enmoladas de pollo. The acidic pineapple juice clears your palate after each bite of the stunningly complex mole. 3672 J Street, http://cielitolindo.us.
