Melon Gin and Tonic

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped honeydew melon from a 1 pound melon and melon balls for ganish
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Gin of choice I used St. Geroge
  • Tonic of choice I looove Fever Tree
  • Ice cubes

Garnish:

  • Melon balls on skewers

Instructions

  • In the jar of a blender, add the honeydew melon, organic cane sugar and water. Blend until very smooth, about 1 minute. Place a sieve over a bowl. Pour the honeydew puree into the sieve and discard the pulp. Note: Now, I found that the mixture was still a little thick so I decided to strain it one more time. If you have a cheesecloth, you'll only need to strain it once (I didn't have one).
  • Add a few ice cubes to each of the four glasses. Pour in three fluid ounces of honeydew juice to each glass; top with one to two fluid ounces of gin (this will depend on taste) and add a splash of tonic. Garnish the drink with a skewer of melon balls.
