Foodie Friday - Melon ball cocktails

This is one of our favourite sweet treats to have at a summer cocktail function. We are making them for a small christening event on Sunday afternoon in glass shot glasses with pink green, yellow and watermelon coloured tooth picks. They are perfect for any summer occasion or even as a palate cleanser. Yummy!
Melon Ball Cocktail
Boil 1 cup of water with 1 cup of sugar for 5 minutes.
Stir in 3 tablespoons of finely chopped mint leaves to the liquid, cool, then strain.
Add the juice of 2 lemons and 1 orange.
Cut lots of balls of watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe with a melon baller
Pour the sugar and mint mixture over the melons and chill for a few hours.
