Pimm's and Cantaloupe

This is a lovely, iced tea-colored sipper that refreshes perfectly, and wonderfully complements a smoky prosciutto on toast. It's drier than your standard Pimm's Cup, with just soda, ginger, and lemon slices instead of sweet sparkling lemonade, and wedges of heirloom cantaloupe instead of cucumbers (they're botanical cousins).
