  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup packed whole fresh mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed seedless watermelon
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed honeydew melon
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed cantaloupe
  • Garnish: fresh mint leaves

Preparation

  1. Combine water and sugar in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and stir in lemon zest and 1/2 cup mint leaves. Cover and let stand until cooled to room temperature. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer, pressing on solids; discard solids. (Syrup makes about 2/3 cup.)
