Cantaloupe Cooler

  • 2 qts cantaloupe chunks (about a 4 lb melon)
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice, or to taste
  • 2 Tbsp superfine sugar, or to taste
  • 1 cup water
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Lime slices for garnish

A nice fruit drink that we made with ripe Athena melons.  Serve over ice and add a shot of vodka or gin if you are so inclined.

Working in two batches, place half each of melon chunks, lime juice, sugar, salt and water in a blender.  Puree until smooth.  If needed add more water for desired consistency. Adjust taste with sugar or lime juice as preferred. Pour mixture into a pitcher. Repeat procedure with remaining half of ingredients; stir into pitcher. Cover and chill thoroughly.  Serve over ice and garnish with a lime slice if desired.
