Paloodeh Talebi – Cantaloupe Cooler (Persia)


Servings: 1

2 -3 chilled cantaloupe, wedges
ice cube
1 dash rose water
1 -2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, to taste
honey or sugar
1 thinly sliced lemon wedge
1 sprig mint


1 Blend cantaloupe with several cubes of ice in a blender.

2 Add a dash of rosewater. Rosewater is a delightful ingredient true to its name but it is also a dominating one so use sparingly. Jazz up the flavor by adding 1 tablespoon or more of fresh lemon juice. Mix with a wooden spoon. Sweeten to taste with honey or lemon, sparingly, so as to allow the natural flavor of the cantaloupe to shine through.

3 Pour into a glass and garnish with fresh mint or very thinly sliced wedge of lemon. Drink up!

4 Drink it quickly before the ice melts and dilutes the drink.
