  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 limes, zest removed in strips with a vegetable peeler
  • 1 vanilla bean, split
  • 4 cups 3/4 to 1-inch honeydew melon balls (from one 5-pound melon)
  • Garnish: whipped cream and freshly grated lime zest


Step 1

In a small saucepan simmer syrup ingredients, stirring, until sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat, add split vanilla bean, and cool syrup completely. 

Step 2

Discard zest and vanilla bean. Syrup may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. 

Step 3

Just before serving, in a medium bowl combine melon balls with syrup and divide mixture among 6 martini glasses. Top each serving with a generous dollop of cream and garnish with grated zest.
