You know I love my cocktails. I love them when they’re easy, I love them when they’re pretty, and I love them when they’re plentiful. When you add fresh ginger to anything, it gives it a real bite, but the flavor is quite energizing at the same time. When I made this drink, the ginger flavor really came through, but that was because I shredded up my ginger with my microblade instead of chopping it up with a knife. More surface area = more flavor.

I originally saw this honeydew melon drink recipe in a Bon Appétit magazine several years ago. It was one of those where you think this would be such a great drink to make, but you never actually make it. Finally, I had a honeydew melon on hand and remembered the drink, but I couldn’t find the issue that had the recipe. I did a search on Epicurious.com and nothing, maybe I have the exact name wrong, but I did remember that the recipe included puree from fresh honeydew melon and prosecco -or sparkling wine of some sorts. I love the traditional bellini, a sparkling peach cocktail, and have some good memories of after work happy hours drinking bellinis. I made this honeydew melon bellini for a brunch party and it was a great success.

The smell of ripe melons reminds me of warm summer days. And warm summer days are perfect for sipping moscato wine or moscato cocktails. Moscato wine is an Italian sweet wine made from muscat grapes – yes, those delicious grapes that are very seasonal and are so sweet and fragrant. Well, moscato wine tastes like the grapes, so if you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it. I also really like to use moscato wine as a base for white sangrias – it works so well and is already sweet that you really don’t need to add a lot of extra sweetener. Cucumber Melon Gin Spritzer.

Hubs and I enjoy spending warm evenings relaxing on the deck, watching the kids play in the yard as the fire flies start to appear, and sipping on a tall, cool, adult beverage. It’s a good time to slow down, catch up on how each other’s day went, and take time to reconnect. One of my favorite new drinks for sultry summer evenings is a Cucumber Melon Gin Spritzer.
