Cucumber Melon Cooler created by Baby Kato

A "green" recipe from Rachel Ray (August 2008 edition of her magazine). Sounds good, so I am storing it here for safe keeping!

    I have found a new *favorite* Never put honeydew and cucumber together, but this was Terrific. Love the sweetness combined with the tart lemon juice. Great combination. I will definitely be making these again! Thanks for sharing another *Keeper* (Made for Bevy Tag 9/08) Cheers ~V

    This is a really lovely drink January Bride. This pretty pale green beauty is very tasty, not overly sweet and very refreshing. I really loved that you could taste both the cucumber and the melon with a hint of citrus in this unique cooler. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
