(recipe, Brian Preston-Campbell)
This refreshing beverage is inspired by agua de melón, a traditional Mexican drink. I removed the white-cane sugar from the original for this more healthful version. Mint adds a clean, herbal note to the sweet green flavor of the honeydew.
To find perfectly ripe honeydew, simply smell the stem end of the fruit (this end has a bigger circular blemish, distinguishing it from the blossom end). If you smell fresh, ripe melon, then it’s ready for use.
