Melon sa Malamig is a Cantaloupe drink from the Philippines. Sa Malamig means “cold” in Tagalog and this is a great drink for a hot August day in Florida. It is a very simple recipe with minimal ingredients. I used a grater to shred the cantaloupe and combine it in a pitcher with sugar and water. You can also add vanilla extract or evaporated milk. If using evaporated milk, drink the Melon sa Malamig quickly after the milk is added. In the Philippines, a melon scraper is used to shred the cantaloupe, but I did not have one. It is available in Southeast Asia and some Asian food markets. If using a grater, take care to protect your hands in case the cantaloupe slice slips.I really enjoyed Melon sa Malamig. It was an easy and refreshing drink. Evan immediately spit it out after trying it. He has been having a difficult time with his molars, so I am not sure if that was the issue or the texture of thin pieces of cantaloupe in the drink. Chad said it was alright, but wouldn’t care if I did not make it again. I want to try it with a melon scraper someday.
