Finally after three weeks of dull, gray weather the sun managed to fight its way through. This calls for some summery drink. It’s been a terrible wet and cold summer. It’s just not OK if you need a winter jacket in the mid of August. And we started to fire up the wood oven a week ago. Since the chances are high that the world will fall asleep tomorrow again I’ll put the juice on ice and go outside right now to soak up as much sun as possible. 


  • 1 large ripe cantaloupe
  • 8 cups water
  • sugar/honey

_ scoop out the seeds 

_ remove skin

_ put the melon flesh into a mixer

_ add 2 cup water 

_ blend well

_ strain through fine sieve

_ add rest of the water

_ add sugar or honey to taste [if cantaloupe is ripe you won’t be needing any sugar]

_ chill and serve on ice
