  • 1 cantaloupe or other ripe orange-fleshed melon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoon lime zest
  • 4 small scoops raspberry sorbet
  • About 1 cup sparkling water (I used La Croix Melon Pomelo)
  • Fresh raspberries , as desired
  1. Cut the melon in half and scrape out the seeds. Scoop 16 or so (1 ½-inch) balls from the melon. (They don't have to be perfectly round.)
  2. Measure 1 cup of melon scraps from the remaining melon (left after scooping the balls), and puree in a blender with the water and lime zest.

  3. Put 3 or 4 melon balls in each of 2 tall glasses. Add one scoop of sorbet. Divide remaining melon balls between the 2 glasses. Top with a second scoop of sorbet. Pour in the blended cantaloupe juice. Top with sparkling water. Garnish with fresh raspberries. Serve immediately with straws and spoons.
