  • I really liked this. We didn't have any watermelon so I just used all cantaloupe. I increased the water for the simple syrup to make it a bit less sweet. I was looking for something to serve with a cheese souffle and this was just perfect. Looking forward to trying it with both melons. - 8/12/11
