I wish I could say that I’m drinking this right now, but my crazy week has left me sniffling in bed with a cold. I’m taking today to slip into a Nyquil coma and hopefully shake this off before the long weekend.

In the meantime, I hope you’re planning a fun-filled weekend with lots of summery cocktails. We had a few bumps in figuring out what to mix with the cantaloupe to really get the flavor out, but in the end, this little spritzer made it out okay.

In other news, the Boston bestie arrives in DC tomorrow for a fabulous summer as roommates. More on that later.

Have a fabulous holiday weekend!

Cantaloupe Coolers

1 cantaloupe, seeds removed
Sprite, or other lemon-lime soda
1-inch piece of ginger root, finely diced
Gin of your choice

First, slice the cantaloupe into pieces, combine with the diced ginger, and puree in a food processor or blender until liquidy. Pour the liquid through a sieve (I just wanted the juice, so perhaps a juicer would be more appropriate… but I don’t own one), and set aside.

In a cold glass, combine 2-3 oz. gin with a healthy mix of your cantaloupe-ginger juice and sprite. Stir with a straw, and mix to taste.
