The Melon Double Twist

by Michelle on July 17, 2008

To continue our month celebration of tequila, I whipped up a new drink the other day a refreshing Tequila Melon Twist. It was especially good and we enjoyed them relaxing on our porch on a lazy Sunday afternoon. This is a perfect adult beverage for a brunch.

Infused Tequila

About 1 c. of 1″ cubed cantaloupe
Tequila, enough to cover the melon

Dice melon and put it in a glass jar or covered bowl. Add enough tequila to cover melon and let it sit the refrigerator for at least 3 days.

Melon Double Twist
Recipe developed in the kitchen of Big-Black-Dog

2 oz Infused melon tequila
1 c. cantaloupe, cubed (you can use the tequila soaked melon)
Juice of 1 large orange
Juice of 1 lime
About 10 ice cubes
Tad of Pomegranate syrup

Garnish: Course sugar, orange peel curl and slice of lime

Rub a lime around the edge of a champagne flute and sugar the rim. Allow the sugar to dry about 10 minutes.

Put the first 5 ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Add a tad of Pomegranate syrup to the bottom of the flute and then pour in the contents of the blender. Garnish with orange curl and slice of lime.

    Look at you! How impresive, the drink looks like what a perfect sunset in Africa would look like. Haha. Not so much a fan of cantalope though.

    It’s so hot here today…whew!!!I’m not much of a melon lover either, but this was pretty good…good enough to make again. The way our weather is looking I might be making them this coming Sunday!

    michelle you always have the loveliest beverages. And I love that glass, so very elegant. I also liked the cupcake with the tarragon icing who would have thought?

    Tequila soaked melon, YUM! That sounds good enough to be drunk in winter too…..if only I could find a decent melon :)
