Agua Fresca de Melon

Adapted from Internet recipes. Summer, 2008. 
5 c cubed, peeled, and seeded melon (from about 3 lb melon; see Note)
1/2 to 3/4 c sugar 
1/3 to 1/2 c lime juice
8 c cold water, divided
In a blender, whirl melon, 1/2 c sugar, and 1 c water until very smooth. Pour into a large pitcher (at least 3 qt). Whisk in 1/3 c lime juice, 7 cups water, and more sugar and lime juice to taste. Chill until cold, at least 1 hour or up to 1 day. Serve over ice. Makes about 2 1/2 qts.
Note: Very ripe cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon all make delicious aguas frescas.
