  • juice of 2 oranges
  • 3 tbsp Campari or 2 tbsp elderflower cordial
  • 8 mint leaves, torn, plus extra
  • 475g tub ready-prepared melons medley (a mix of melons)
  • caster sugar, for sprinkling


  1. Be a clever cheat and save time and buy a tub of fresh ready prepared melon chunks. Mix the orange juice, Campari or cordial and mint in a bowl. Tip in the melon with any juice, and stir. Pile the lot into tumblers and top each with mint leaves. For frosted tumblers, run the outside of 4 tumblers under the cold tap. Scatter with caster sugar and put in the freezer until ready to serve, about 30 minutes.
