Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. ripe honeydew melon (about ½ medium melon)
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 ½ cups water
  • Optional: honey or sweetener of your choice (depending on the sweetness of the fruit)

Instructions

  • Peel and cube the honeydew and puree it in a blender. You should have about 2 cups of puree. Pour it into a pitcher along with the lemon juice and water and stir to combine well. If needed, add a tablespoon or two of honey or other sweetener (if the honeydew is ripe and very sweet, you won't need to use any additional sweetener). If desired, strain the honeydew lemonade before pouring into glasses. Serve over ice.

Notes

For a fun twist, make some melon ball ice cubes to add to your drink. Using a melon baller, scoop some balls from the honeydew and place them in the freezer for a few hours until completely frozen. Then, when you're ready to enjoy your drink, add them to your glass. They look adorable, taste great, and will keep your drink cold without diluting it!
