If you're also melting from the current heatwave, let me suggest this fantastic fruity drink. It's super easy -- just puree honeydew melon with a little sugar, water, and lemon juice, and then strain out the solids (if you like a smoother drink). Chill and drink in large quantities! It's so refreshing, and I won't tell if you add a little something stronger (psst...pisco is really tasty!) Plus -- the color is amazing!
Day-Glow Honeydew Agua Fresca
4-1/2 cups chopped honeydew melon
3 cups water (approximate)
1 T sugar (preferably superfine, but regular is fine too)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Combine the melon with 1-1/2 cups water, the sugar, and the lemon juice, and puree until smooth. Add it about a cup of the additional water, then taste and add more water, sugar, and/or lemon juice to taste. Chill well, and then serve over ice.
