Mead Melonade

Mead Melonade:

 The ginger adds a spicy kick to the sweetness of the honey and melon in this easy-drinking cocktail.


Peel melon and remove seeds. Chop melon in medium pieces and blend on high for 2 minutes. Place in a fine mesh strainer without pushing pulp through, allowing melon to drain on its own (may take 5 to 10 minutes). Reserve juice. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into a classic martini glass. Garnish with a melon ball and mint leaf.
