I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'wet' is the definition.
Both the answer and definition are adjectives. Maybe they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'is cold' becomes 'icy' (similar in meaning).
'june' halved is 'ju'.

'and' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for juicy that I've seen before include "description of ripe oranges" , "Succulent - risque - lucrative" , "Full of sap" , "Interestingly scandalous" , "Provocatively interesting" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
