Well National Vodka Day has nearly passed. Did you do anything fun to celebrate?
We tested out a new cocktail, our first try at using the Cantaloupe Vodka we made this summer. And this drink is fabulous; the perfect way to pay tribute to this special day.
Love Cocktail (makes 2)
5 oz Cantaloupe Vodka
Juice of 1 small lime
1 TB Honey
1 TB Water
Lime zest to garnish
Combine honey and water and heat until honey is dissolved. Allow to cool. Add honey-water combination, lime juice, and Cantaloupe Vodka to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, and strain into cocktail glasses. Add lime twist.
This drink is really delicious. It is sweet, tangy, and somehow the lime and honey allow the cantaloupe flavor to really shine.

Yum! That looks like a delicious brunch (Read: Morning Tailgating) drink. A nice alternative for those of us who are not big bloody Mary fans.

Thanks Kelli! I am also not a bloody mry fan, and this would be a fun brunch drink! Thank you for the idea

This recipe came just in time – improbably, I have both vodka and a cantaloupe. Cheers!

Great! Happy Infusing! I hope you enjoy it, it is a great way to enjoy those summer fruits later in the year.

Nice! We put lime and honey on melons…so a boozy version would be even better!

I imagine you would come up with an amazing version of a boozy-melon cocktail! Your drink ideas always look amazing!
