Expert Tips

Light, refreshing and great for a crowd!

Honeydew melon balls taste great and add a colorful touch to this crowd-appealing drink. To make melon balls, scoop out balls from honeydew melon with a melon baller. Freeze the balls about 1 hour or until frozen. Just before serving, float balls in lemonade.
