Nothing quite compares to biting into a fresh, juicy, dripping triangle of watermelon on a hot summer day, but you can’t exactly do that on the subway (in fact, please don’t). But this season, you can experience a similar effect in bottled form.

Rapidly expanding company WTRMLN WTR recently opened a sweet little store (or window) on Spring Street in Soho, and healthy fast casual dining chainlet Dig Inn just introduced Watermelon juice as its newest cold-pressed beverage, made with locally-sourced “Long Island Sugar Babies.”  (Many of the city’s other juice bars also stock the juice, like Organic Avenue and Juice Press.)

Both of the new drinks are made with little more than fresh watermelon and are cold-pressed and unpasteurized (although WTRMLN WTR is preserved using HPP).  And advocates say the juice is ultra hydrating (it’s mostly water), with important nutrients like potassium and vitamin A.

Hey, there’s nothing quite like spitting out seeds at a BBQ, but we’ll take what we can get.—Lisa Elaine Held
