  • chinois or strainer


  • 1 ripe cantaloupe peeled and seeds scooped out (yield 3-1/2 cups juice)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice about 2
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar amount to taste


  • Puree fruit and strain fruit through a chinois or other fine mesh strainer.
  • You should have 3-1/2 cups juice.
  • Stir with sugar and lime and top up a 48-oz. pitcher with water (approximately an equal amount to the juice, around 3 cups).
  • Sugar quantity may vary depending on the season, and if you get the huge Athena cantaloupes in summer, you may have extra juice that you can save for a second batch.
