    Lovely cocktail. Had just bought one of those melons–the scent as you walk by the display stops you in your tracks–you know these melons are just about perfect. So sweet I wondered how to utilize in a cocktail. Love using in season fruits. I follow the directions almost exactly. Love Hendricks, but it is a bit pricey. Use Amsterdam and the result was delicious.

    • Hi Dena, Yep…the melons right now are ridiculously delicious! I’m so glad you like the cocktail. The Hendricks just gives it more of a floral flavor, but Amsterdam works great too. I use Amsterdam vodka and gin a lot myself. CHEERS!

    Yum! Thank you for posting this and what a great idea! We got two cantaloupes in our CSA box and were trying to come up with things to do with them. I think drinking them might be the best option.

  • That cocktail is stunning, especially dramatic against that black background.

  • You might consider adding a splash of some anise liqueur. It is magic with cantaloupe! GREG

    I LOVE Gin, and I love the taste of Cantaloupe, so they kinda have to go together right? This recipe goes perfectly with my liquid diet, so it’s definitely going in my “to consume” list. Hell, I’m even gonna pin it! :-)

    PS, you’ve never offended me, how the hell could you ever offend anyone? You are the sweetest, funniest, coolest chicky ever!!! Anyone who has a problem should probably take the stick out! <3 xoxo

  • I love your pie chart. It’s so true!
    And I just picked the fattest cantaloupe from the garden! Can’t wait!

  • I just purchased the most fragrant and HUGE cantaloupe from the Farmer’s Market. Glad I schlep that sucker home, I’m now set for the weekend.
