A refreshing drink with a unique flavor. Tou can kick it up a notch if you want with adding a little alcohol. I think that strawberries or maybe even a little more lime (or even lemon) would make this even tastier.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Place the melon pieces into your blender (until about half full) and then squeeze the lime juice into the blender. Use a pulse setting to blend and add water in 1/4 cup increments until it starts to move.
  2. Once the fruit has turned to pulp, add more fruit if you have it. Leave the blender on for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Use a spoon to determine how smooth it is. If you wish it to be smoother, keep blending for up to 4 more minutes and taste to determine if it is sweet enough. If you're not sure, add a little salt, blend it for 30 seconds and taste again.
  4. If it still isn't sweet enough, add sugar and blend again for a minute. Once it tastes the way you want, you're ready to get it to have the texture that you want.
  5. Pour the pulp mixture into a serving pitcher. Add cold water a cup at a time and stir vigorously until reaching your desired thickness.
  6. If you want a smoother drink, put a colander over a large bowl or pan. Line it with two layers of cheesecloth and slowly pour your drink through it to catch any fibers.
  7. Any unused pieces of melon can be taken as melon balls, frozen, and then put into the drinks as a sort of "ice cube" making a great treat in the drink as well.

A nice, refreshing drink that I served with toast and dipping oil for a lovely breakfast. I used honey instead of sugar and halved the recipe using lemon juice. Thank you Topher!
