Grapefruit and Melon Refresher

This is very light and fresh especially if chilled on a hot summers day. But there is a twist, you can freeze it for the winter months as well. This was the starter I had for my wedding breakfast.

1 small ripe melon (I use Honeydew if I can get it)
1 grapefruit peeled and segmented removing as much of the white pith as you can.
2 tablespoons of lime juice (if fresh limes are not available cheat and use lime cordial) it is just as good.
2 oz caster sugar

Halve the melon and remove the seeds. Peel the melon halves cut the flesh into cubes and place into a sturdy container with the grapefruit segments, lime juice and sugar. Leave to stand in the fridge for a minimum of one hour.

To freeze: cover label and freeze
To serve fresh: place mixture into wine glasses
To serve from the freezer: Take out of freezer put in fridge to thaw and leave overnight. Serve in glasses.

Serves approximately 4 servings
