Ingredients

  • 2 ripe cavaillon melons
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • 3/4 cup sweet muscatel wine, preferably Beaumes-de-Venise
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced basil leaves
  • 1 cup small strawberries, quartered
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • Mint leaves, for garnish

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Using a stainless-steel knife, cut melons in half, creating a sawtooth edge. Scoop out seeds and stringy fibers. Using a melon baller, scoop flesh from melons. Place melon balls in a large bowl, and sprinkle with sugar. Add wine, lemon juice, and basil. Cover with plastic wrap, and transfer to refrigerator to macerate for 2 hours. Scrape remaining melon from shells until smooth, creating bowls. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to use.

  2. Step 2

    Spoon macerated melon balls into shells. Top with strawberries and raspberries. Garnish with mint, and serve immediately.
