Ingredients

  • 2 Pure Flavor® Solara Mini Melons
  • 3 cups of ice, divided
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, more for garnish
  • 2 limes, juiced

Directions

Step 1

Cut top off melon, leaving ¾ of the melon intact. Using a melon baller, scoop out 8 melon balls and reserve.

Step 2

Using a spoon, scoop out flesh, remove seeds and set melon bowls aside.

Step 3

Bring water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer for a few minutes or until the sugar is completely dissolved in the water.

Step 4

Add the mint, remove the pan from the heat, and allow the syrup to cool to room temperature.

Step 5

Once cool, strain syrup into bowl and discard mint.

Step 6

To a blender, add the remaining melon, lime juice, and mint syrup. Blend on high until smooth.

Step 7

Add 1 cup of ice to the blender and blend on high. Keep adding ice by the handful until the mixture reaches a thickened slushy consistency.

Step 8

Pour into melon bowls, top with melon balls and garnish with mint. Serve immediately.

Pro Tip

To take this from mocktail to cocktail, add ¾ cup white rum when blending together.
