Melon with Beaumes-de-Venise
Any sweet dessert wine may be substituted for the Beaumes-de-Venise, a naturally sweet white wine that comes from the Rhone area of France.
- 2 cups Beaumes-de-Venise
- 1 ripe melon, or a mixture of melons, such as honeydew, Crenshaw, and cantaloupe, seeds and rind removed, cut into 1-inch cubes
Chill the wine until it is extremely cold, at least three hours.
Divide the melon cubes among four decorative serving glasses. Pour 1/2 cup wine over each glass of melon, and serve immediately.
