Cantaloupe Cocktails

I had some left over bits and pieces in the kitchen and some white rum, so Mark and I tried a new combination of flavors for a cocktail: cool cucumber, cantaloupe and fresh mint blended with ice, lime and rum. I think this little cocktail might be that much better with vodka or gin.

  • 2 cups cantaloupe
  • 1/2 cup English cucumber
  • 1/4 cup mint
  • 2 ounces rum (vodka or gin)
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey

Pulse it in the blender until smooth. Then strain the juice into a martini glass and garnish with a cucumber and cantaloupe slice.
