Sometimes the simplest things are best. I loved this dessert. The cantaloupe was sweet and juicy, the Cassis syrup was wonderful thick and tangy, vanilla bean ice cream and blueberries because I was out of blackberries and couldn't wait to try this. It was amazing. So much flavor and the texture was spot on. Thanks so much for sharing a new family favorite. Even the picky one enjoyed it. Made for CQ2 - Quebec.

What a wonderful combination of flavors and textures. I was pleasantly surprised at how great the melon was with the ice cream and berries. I made the Cassis a year ago and finally found something yummy to use it on!! Thanks! Made for Culinary Quest 2015/LBOB

I love melons of all kinds, and this is a lovely way to serve it. Had to borrow the Cassis, as we don't have much liquor in the house. All I had to do was tell my neighbor that of course he would get some. Simple but very lovely to look at. Thnx for posting, LifeIsGood. Made for ZWT5 for RRR.

So easy and so good. This was a perfect light dessert for our warm summer evening last night. DH is not much of an ice cream person, but he really liked the way the ice cream toned the tartness of the fruit. I did use your suggestion about omitting the liqueur for our dessert. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for ZWT5.
