1. Halve the melon and scoop out the seeds. Cut the melon into wedges, peel and slice them into cubes.
2. Pop the cucumber in a blender or food processor with the melon, lime juice and agave syrup or honey. Whizz till smooth. Pass through a sieve to remove any lumps. Taste and add more lime or sweetener, if needed.
3. Serve the cucumber and melon cooler over ice in a jug with fresh mint leaves, topped up with ice-cold sparkling water. For the adults only version, add 2-3 shots of your favourite gin or vodka to the jug before serving. Melons up!
