- 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
Cut top off melon, leaving ¾ of the melon intact. Using a melon baller, scoop out 8 melon balls and reserve.
Using a spoon, scoop out flesh, remove seeds and set melon bowls aside.
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.
Add the mint, remove the pan from the heat, and allow the syrup to cool to room temperature.
Once cool, strain syrup into bowl and discard mint.
To a blender, add the remaining melon, lime juice, and mint syrup. Blend on high until smooth.
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.
Pour into melon bowls, top with melon balls and garnish with mint. Serve immediately.
To take this from mocktail to cocktail, add ¾ cup white rum when blending together.
