Musk Melon Cooler…

This is my very first Blog Hop post and I am glad to be a part of Culinary Hoppers which has committed bloggers who I admire and follow ..
Culinary Hoppers decide a theme twice a month and then we create and post recipes accordingly .. This time the theme is Beverages .

Beverages are a must in my house special during summer , so when I came to know that the theme is Beverages , I was thrilled and decided to make Melon Cooler which my boys love and can have anything .
It was fun making this fruity drink in no time!!!

This delicious low-carb drink calls for the melon of your choice — I used Musk melon plus a splash of lime juice along with ice cubes to make this refreshing drink ..

Makes: 2 servings
Serving Size: 4 ounce

Ingredients
2 cups seeded and chopped Musk Melon or any Melon of your choice
1 tablespoon lime juice
Ice cubes as needed
Sugar as per taste (I did not use any as the melon was super sweet )
Melon or lime wedges for garnish (optional)

Direction
In a blender combine melon cubes and lime juice.
Cover and blend until smooth.
Press mixture through a fine-mesh sieve; discard pulp. (You should have about 11/2 cup juice.)
Serve over ice or chill mixture and serve in chilled martini or wine glasses.

If desired, garnish with melon or lime wedges.

Makes 2 (4-ounce) servings
