Method

  1. Put the melon chunks in a blender or food processor with the lime juice and apple juice. Whizz to the smoothest you can get, then stir in the lime zest. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  2. To serve, pour the melon mixture into a big jug with the wine, then add an equal part of lemonade and give it a good stir. Thread a few melon balls onto skewers, if you like, add one to each glass with some crushed ice, and top up with the melon spritzer.
