Melon water is a great summertime drink as it is very refreshing (and that is when the melons are ripe and at their most flavorful).

8

cups

water                                  

 

 

2

liters

cup

sugar

Cut the cantaloupe in half, scoop out the seed and place them in a food processor or blender. Add 3 cups roughly chopped cantaloupe and 1 cup [250 ml] water. Puree until smooth.

Strain the pureed mixture into a pitcher, dilute with 7 cups (remaining) water, add the sugar and stir.

If you like, before serving, cut up the rest of the cantaloupe and place a few small chunks in each glass or in the pitcher.
