      This was very light and refreshing. The flavoured syrup was divine. I used honeydew and rockmelon balls and removed from the syrup after chilling to serve in a glass that had been dipped in egg white and sugar. Delicious

      This is a very easy, light and refreshing dessert. With the exception of extra lime zest I made it as posted with watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melon. I served it in martini glasses and it looked fabulous. Also, the directions don't tell how many minutes to simmer the syrup so I let it simmer for 5 minutes.
