Rainbow Melons Ice Cubes

To create perfectly round melon balls, use a teaspoon-sized cookie dough scoop instead of a traditional melon baller. Gently press the open side of the scoop straight down into the melon, and then twist in place to create the ball.

  • 1 each melon in different colors try red watermelon, cantalope, honeydew, and yellow watermelon
  • ice water or chilled club soda sparkling water, or ginger ale
  • Lemon wedges
  • Mint sprigs for garnish optional


  • Use a melon scoop or small cookie dough scoop to scoop out balls from each melon. Place melon balls on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in freezer until frozen. Use immediately or transfer to a freezer-safe container. As the melons warm in your water, they'll infuse the drink with a light, sweet flavor. Fabulous in sparkling water with a squeeze of lemon and a sprig of mint.
