Honeydew Melon Martini

Honeydew Melon Martini

A while back I had a rather poorly made melon martini at a local restaurant. Although the drink itself disappointed, the idea appealed and I set out to make a better version. The result is an amazingly refreshing and well balanced drink that's just perfect for summer.

To make the melon puree simply puree chunks of honeydrew in a blender or small chopper and pass through a strainer. Note that although the Midori, a melon flavored liqueur, is ideal for this drink, if you don't have any you can substitute Triple Sec. The result won't be quite as "melon-y" but still excellent. Cheers!

Per Serving:
2 1/4 oz. Vodka
3 oz. Honeydew melon puree
1/2 oz. Midori
3/4 oz. Lime juice
1/2 oz. Simple syrup

Shake over ice and serve in a chilled cocktail glass garnished with a wedge of melon.
