Fresh, ripe melons are great for eating straight from the rind, but did you know you can make a refreshing drink with them too?

INGREDIENTS
For the cantaloupe syrup
1 cup cantaloupe chunks (rinds removed)
1/2 cup sugar

For the cantaloupe cooler
3 tablespoons cantaloupe syrup
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
1 mint leaf, plus another for garnish
Freshly opened bottle of seltzer, to top off the glass
Instructions
To make the cantaloupe syrup, place the chunks of fruit into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to coarsely chop, then let machine process until it becomes a smooth puree, about 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into a saucepan and stir in the sugar. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute more, until all the sugar has dissolved. Skim foam from top, set aside and let cool.

Strain cooled cantaloupe syrup to remove foam and "sediment". You should be left with a 1/2 cup of syrup. Transfer to a covered container and chill it in the refrigerator (this step may be made up to one week in advance).

Fill an 8-ounce glass with ice. Add all the drink ingredients, and stir until mixed well. Top off the glass with seltzer, about 2 ounces worth. Garnish with a mint leaf, if desired.
