Melon ice cubes add a splash of color

Once cut, fresh melons only last a day or two, so if you won't finish a big one before it spoils, puree seeded chunks in a blender or food processor. Pour mixture into ice-cube trays, and freeze until solid. Use the cubes to dress up lemonade, or try our favorite pairing: watermelon ice cubes in a minty-fresh mojito.
