Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2010

Ingredients

  • 14 cups honeydew melon or cantaloupe (from a 5-pound melon)
  • 1/3 cup superfine sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from 4 limes)
  • Ice
  • 2 cups raspberries

Directions

  1. Set a large fine-mesh sieve over a large pitcher or jug. In batches, in a food processor or blender, puree melon until smooth. Pour melon puree through sieve, pressing on solids with a rubber spatula (you should have about 4 cups juice).

  2. In a small bowl, combine superfine sugar and fresh lime juice; stir until sugar dissolves. Add lime mixture and 4 cups water to melon juice and mix well. Adjust sweetness with more sugar if desired. (Mixture can be refrigerated, up to 2 days.) To serve, add plenty of ice and 2 cups raspberries.
