Melonade

We bought a Honeydew Melon that wasn't super sweet, so we decided to turn the rest of it into melonade.  I love the bright green color that it is.  It would be perfect for some goblin green drinks.  I might have to go buy another honeydew and freeze the juice for Halloween. It's pretty viscous as well so Jeremy wants to try floating some of those giant tapioca pearls in it--to make it look more creepy.

We just made up the recipe but here it is if you want to try.


Melonade Recipe:

1/2 large honeydew melon, seeded
3 large lemons
1/4 cup sugar (more or less to taste)

Slice honeydew into chunks and place in blender, or use an immersion blender.  Puree until smooth.  Squeeze lemons into the melon juice.  Pour through a strainer to remove fibers and lemon seeds (it takes a little while).  Chill in fridge.   Serve cold.
