  • 12 cup sugar
  • 12 cup water
  • 3 cups cubed watermelon (without seeds) or 3 cups other melon
  • 1 12 cups ice cubes
  • 12 lemon, juice of, plus grated rind
  • 1 cup cooled strong-brewed tea, from a cherry or almond tea bag (you can try other flavors, too)


  1. Heat the sugar and water, stirring constantly, until the sugar melts.
  2. Set aside to cool.
  3. Put all the remaining ingredients, including the dissolved sugar syrup, in a blender and blend just long enough to achieve that icy-mush quality.
  4. Serve immediately, in tall frosty glasses.
