My ultimate favorite melon drink is the super duper simple classic Melon Juice. It’s so refreshing and this drink is perfect for tropical country like the Philippines. Just a sip of it and you’ll feel not just refreshed but also a bit of a dose of happiness. I just love this drink and I do tend to make this a lot. I won’t ever get tired of Melon Juice.
After making Melon Juice, we do have to keep it only till the next 2 days. It’s not a concern for me since I can literally drink a liter of it in one day. I usually pour them into bottles and then I get one from the fridge whenever I’m craving to drink melon juice. One 500-ml is one serving for me 😊
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 piece melon/cantaloupe
- 6 cups cold water
Cut melon in half.
Using a spoon, scrape off the middle part where the seeds and pulp are. Place on a bowl.
Put one cup of water on the bowl with melon seeds & pulp. Stir and mash very well to extract the flavor of the melon.
Then strain the juice and discard the rest.
Using a melon scraper, scrape all the flesh from the melon.
Separately, in a sauce pan, cook simple syrup by boiling 1 cup water and sugar. Then set aside to cool down.
In a pitcher, add the melon strands, juice (from the pulp & seeds), simple syrup and water. Stir well.
Serve the melon juice with lots of ice cubes. Enjoy!
