Sweet from the melon, sour from the lime, and a kick from the ginger. This refreshing drink is everything a hot day calls for. As a bonus, the melon is also a wonderful source of vitamin C!

Directions

  1. To a blender, add the melon, lime juice, and fresh ginger. Blend until smooth.
  2. To create the optional decorative rim, run a lime wedge around the rims of your serving glasses. Pour some sugar on a small plate and dip the edge of the glass in the sugar- and voilà! You've got a decorative rim!
  3. Divide the crushed ice between the glasses, and top it with the cucumber slices.
  4. Pour overtop two parts blended melon mixture, to one part carbonated water. Add agave syrup to taste, and enjoy!

Notes

  • Variations: add a few leaves of fresh mint or basil to the blender for a unique twist.

Storage

  • Best if enjoyed immediately. The blended melon can be stored in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 1 day.

If I’m not a fan of agave or maple syrup in drinks, would this recipe still work well with simple syrup?

This drink is my favorite for the summer. It's also fun to make when you have some people over! The lime and sugar rim on the glass not only gives it an extra punch of the lime flavor at the top, but also makes the drink super cute in pictures.

This website is so posh! I love how user-friendly it is. It's virtually refreshing and the contents are well-thought of. Superb job Pick up Limes Team. Been following the Youtube Channel for quite a while now. Funny background story, I was sick and in-search of something that will make me more healthy at that time when I discovered Pick Up Limes, ended up binge watching all the videos from recipes to minimalism and viola! been hooked ever since. Thank you guys! More power :)
