Honeydew Lillet Cocktail

Ingredients

    Melon Juice

  • ½ honeydew melon, peeled, seeded and cubed

    Cocktail

  • ½ cup (125 ml) ice cubes
  • 1 ½ oz (45 ml) Lillet Blanc, chilled
  • 1 ½ oz (45 ml) melon juice
  • 4 oz (125 ml) tonic water, chilled
  • 3 balls honeydew melon, removed with a melon baller
  • 1 lemon balm sprig (optional)

Preparation

Melon Juice

  1. In a blender, purée the melon cubes until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve, without pushing down on the pulp, to extract only the juice (see note). Compost the pulp.

Cocktail

  1. Place the ice cubes in a spritzer glass. Add the Lillet, melon juice and tonic. Thread the melon balls onto a toothpick. Place in the glass along with the lemon balm sprig, if desired.

Note

Depending on the size of your honeydew, you may have enough juice to make several cocktails.
