ingredients

directions

  • Blend cantaloupe with several cubes of ice in a blender.
  • Add a dash of rosewater. Rosewater is a delightful ingredient true to its name but it is also a dominating one so use sparingly. Jazz up the flavor by adding 1 tablespoon or more of fresh lemon juice. Mix with a wooden spoon. Sweeten to taste with honey or lemon, sparingly, so as to allow the natural flavor of the cantaloupe to shine through.
  • Pour into a glass and garnish with fresh mint or very thinly sliced wedge of lemon. Drink up!
  • Drink it quickly before the ice melts and dilutes the drink.

    I love homemade cantaloupe coolers. The addition of the rosewater and lemon make this very special. The flavor was outstanding, fresh, raw and sweet, just the way I like it. It was very quick and easy to make. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will enjoy often this summer. made for New Kids on the Block Game
