I liked this recipe as it was refreshing and different. The intention of the recipe is to use up leftover fruit, but I didn't have any. I cheated a bit and bought pre-cut honeydew melon. The deli at Superstore has a three pack of cut up fruit for $6.98. An added bonus is that the honeydew section was EXACTLY 3 cups and I did not have to fuss with seeds, etc., not to mention that a whole honeydew was $4.98 at that time. I reduced the sugar even more and used half of the recommended amount. I love the fresh lime in the recipe as well as it makes it even more refreshing. As a variation, I also tried this shaken with tequila and served over ice - martini style..it was unique and very tasty! The recipe makes a large container and it is best used in a day or so, so I recommend making this for a group of people or for company. I will make this occasionally if I have company, perhaps for a Mexican Night. It is a nice treat, but I could see myself tiring of it if it was always around. I think I will try pineapple next time or maybe I can try it with some peaches in the next week or two....Cheers!
