Combine everything in a blender and puree until smooth. Since most store bought conventional cukes are coated in wax, if you're not using organic cucumbers, peel it first. Your melon might be of perfect ripeness and very sweet, so start with less sugar and adjust according to taste. Some blenders can puree foods to a very fine consistency. Some others not so much. Pour through a sieve if you like less chunky. Chill for at least one hour. Serve over ice with a mint leaf for garnish.
