  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1 teaspoon honey more as desired
  • 3 ounces cantaloupe puree
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • Optional: fresh mint leaves additional for garnish
  • Cantaloupe balled, for garnish
  • Ice cubes


  • For the Puree: Cut the cantaloupe into chunks and blend in a high-speed blender or food processor for 30 seconds until completely smooth. Depending on the size of your cantaloupe, this will yield about 16 ounces of puree.
  • In a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes, add vodka and honey and stir well until honey is mostly dissolved. Add cantaloupe puree, ginger, lime juice, and mint, if adding. Muddle the mint with the back of a wooden spoon. Shake vigorously then strain and pour into a chilled glass.
  • Garnish with sprigs of mint and melon balls if desired.


Add more honey as desired. Make sure to really stir it in to get it to combine into the drink. Maple syrup will work well here, too.
