1 - small honeydew melon
1 - seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
1 - lime, thinly sliced
12 - fresh mint leaves
1/4 - cup lime juice
1/4 - cup honey
1 - 750 milliliter bottle Sauvignon blanc or other semi-dry white wine, chilled
1 - 1 liter bottle carbonated water, chilled
Fresh mint sprigs and/or leaves (optional)

Cut the melon in half; remove and discard seeds and rind. Cut melon into thin slices. In a large pitcher* combine melon, cucumber, lime slices, and the 12 mint leaves. In a small bowl stir together lime juice and honey until combined; pour over melon mixture. Add wine, stirring gently. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours.

To serve, stir in carbonated water. Ladle or pour into glasses. If desired, garnish with additional mint.

From the Test Kitchen

If a large pitcher will not fit into your refrigerator, divide the mixture in half and place in 2 smaller pitchers or covered containers.
