Ingredients

  • 6 cups cubed honeydew melon (about half of a medium melon)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 cups seltzer
  • Lime peels, for garnishing

Directions

  1. Working in batches, puree 6 cups cubed honeydew melon in a blender. Pour puree through a fine sieve into an 8-inch square nonreactive dish.

  2. Put 1/2 cup water and sugar into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Stir into puree. Add fresh lime juice; stir to combine. Freeze, covered, at least 6 hours (up to 3 days).

  3. Scrape granita with a fork; spoon about 1 cup granita into each of 6 glasses. Pour 1/2 cup seltzer into each glass; garnish with lime peels.
