Strawberry Melon Fizz

A cold drink and fresh fruit too. And so pretty. What's not to like?


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 fresh mint sprigs
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, halved
  • 2 cups cubed honeydew
  • 1 3/4 cups cubed cantaloupe
  • ginger ale or sparkling white grape juice



In sauce pan, combine sugar, water, and mint, and bring to a boil. Boil and stir until candy thermometer reads 240 degrees F (soft ball stage). Remove from heat, and allow to cool. Discard mint.

Combine the strawberries and melon.

Just before serving, fill tall glasses with fruit and drizzel with 1 Tablespoon syrup. Add ginger ale to each glass. Garnish with a thin wedge of cantaloupe and a whole strawberry on the rim of the glass. Add a colorful straw, and long handle ice tea spoon. Enjoy.

Boy, this sounds so refreshing. One question, why discard the mint? I thought you could eat it like parsley!
