Put this on your Honey Do List

Even though the weather has turned cool,  and the first few leaves are blushing with color, there a few things from summer clinging on.  Melons.  I love them, but I can’t grow them.  I’ve tried.  So, when I see them at the Farmer’s Market I kind of go crazy.  This cocktail was inspired by an especially good honeydew I picked up at the Winooski Farmer’s Market (Misery Loves Co. has a stand set up here too…come and visit us!).  This melon was so juicy that  only about a quarter was needed for cocktails, the rest we saved and ate with ribbons of iberico jam.  Actually, it went really well with the Honey Do and I highly recommend you serve them together (even if it’s just for yourself).

Honey Do

 

Honey Do

1 oz. Vodka

1/2 oz. Aquavit…this really makes the drink, so try and find it.  It’s a Scandinavian spirit made from caraway and star anise.  It’s amazing.

Juice of 1/2 a Lemon

1/4 oz. Mint Simple Syrup

2 oz. Honeydew Juice (throw it through your juicer, or blender and strain)

Shake all ingredients with ice and serve up in a coup glass.  Garnish with lemon zest.
