I guess Ricardo of Osa Mountain Village likes chef Rafael Calderon a lot because this is another recipe he gave to me that comes from him. Refreshing on a hot day this is a great summertime drink and of course in Costa Rica it is summer time most of the year so this is a great year round drink. Serve it for breakfast, lunch or dinner or use it as a mixer with your favorite alcoholic beverage for a new twist on one of your old favorites.
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup of sugar syrup
1 / 2 honeydew melon cut into two halves

In a blender, mix the lemon, water, syrup and half of the melon.
Serve a pitcher with some ice.
Add half of diced melon
Level of complexity: Very easy.

Pack up a cooler and head down to the beach. It’s only a short drive from Osa Mountain Village to three incredible beaches. Just take your pick and then relax in the sun or under a palm tree, but watch out for falling coconuts. Then open up your cooler and pour yourself a tall glass of refreshing Lemonade with Honey Dew Melon while gazing out at the blue waters of the cove. If you stare long enough the sound of the waves and reflections off the water will put you into a tranquil trance-like state.
