Melon Chillers

This will refresh you


1 lb. cubed honey dew melon, cantaloupe or watermelon
  (pineapple would be wonderful too)
Sparkling Limonata, Orangeada or sparkling soda water




Place one variety of cubed melon at a time in food processor. Pulse until pureed and pour through a strainer (if necessary), pressing on solids.  Chill puree in separate containers up to 48 hours.  May last 2 - 4 days.




Combine one cup chilled melon puree to two cups soda/soda water and serve over ice.




Kitschy straw totally optional; pretend "snowy" mountains in background, also optional but may be psychologically helpful


With drink in hand, I will be partying at these places
