Test Kitchen Tip

To make things really easy, the simple syrup and melon juice can be made ahead and refrigerated, separately.


Heat water, sugar, and ¼ cup cucumber in a saucepan over medium-high for the simple syrup until sugar dissolves. Off heat, stir remaining ¼ cup cucumber into syrup; let cool to room temperature, then strain and discard solids.

Purée melon in a blender; strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Reserve juice and discard solids.

Muddle mint in a pitcher with simple syrup until fragrant. Stir in melon juice, rum, and lime juice; chill. Just before serving, stir in club soda and serve over ice.
