I've made it several times and it is a great summer dish. Very refreshing. I add a little more ammeretto, but otherwise the same. I have also halved the recipe for just a small family dinner and still have plenty for left overs.

  1. In a blender, combine mint, lemon juice, simple syrup, and amaretto. Blend until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the watermelon and the cantaloupe. Add the vinaigrette and toss. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
  3. Simple Syrup:
  4. 1/2 cup water
  5. 1 cup sugar
