      DH and I really enjoyed this and can't wait to share it with family and friends! I made a smaller batch --for 2- so I nuked the syrup for 2 minutes instead of putting it on the stove. Served with Cumin Flatbread, carrots, and Greek Lamb Casserole. Thank you Galley Wench for posting. Made for Unrulies Under the Influence during ZWT6 --NA*ME.

      I felt so fancy while eating this. It was one of those exquisite recipes,that you see being made by a fancy chef and think you'll have to pay a lot in a five star restaurant. It was simple to make and while I thought the syrup will be too sweet,it worked out just fine since the cantaloupe wasn't on the sweet side. Left the wine out for DDs,I sprinkled some red wine on mine and it was fine with or without.Made for ZWT6.

      This recipe screamed: "Oooh, pick me, pick me!" ;) And I'm glad I did! Yesterday I found fresh organic yellow watermelon at the natural food store and I knew the perfect recipe would present itself. Subbed ouzo for muscatel but other than that, stayed true to the recipe. Next time I'll grab a bottle of muscatel and try it out. Thanks for posting! Reviewed for ZWT #6.
