Very refreshing in this summer heat. Made as posted but I only used 1 tablespoon sugar and it worked for me. The lime juice was the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for posting bernrome. Mmade for Choose Your Event Party.

Delicious, so delicious bernrome. I loved this quick and easy to make drink. The cantaloupe and lime are wonderful together, they create a very special drink. The flavor and texture are awesome. I think that this is my favorite cantaloupe treat to date. Thanks so much for sharing. Kudos Kato
