This is a great served icy cold on a hot day or taken in a Thermos to a picnic. Kids will take to this soupy drink so don't leave it unattended. If you want to make a version for them, use grenadine or just the melon. I've tried all sorts of melons for this - as long as they are ripe and sweet it doesn't really matter which you use.

1 ripe Charentais or rock melon, peeled and seeded
1 ripe ogen or honeydew melon, peeled and seeded
2-3tbsp Campari

Cut about 1/5 of the melon into small 1/2cm dice. Blend the rest of the melon until smooth with the Campari and strain through a sieve. Mix the liquid melon with the diced melon and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours or until ice cold, or place in the freezer for an hour or so and serve slightly slushy.
