Cantaloupe Daiquiris
Total Time:
15 mins
A cantaloupe daiquiri is the most gorgeous cocktail for summer! Ingredients like fresh, ripe cantaloupe juice, rum and maraschino cherry juice are shaken to refreshing perfection! 
  • 3 ounces fresh cantaloupe "juice" or puree
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
  • 1 ounce maraschino cherry juice
  • splash of lime juice
  • splash of seltzer
  1. To make the cantaloupe "juice," blend 2 cups cubed cantaloupe melon in a blender until pureed and smooth. Strain the mixture through a mesh strainer that is sitting on a bowl, pushing any extra liquid out with a spoon.
  2. Add the rum, cantaloupe juice, syrup, cherry juice and lime juice to a shaker filled with ice. Shake for 30 seconds then pour into a frosty glass. If you’d like some bubbles, splash some seltzer on top! Garnish with a wedge of lime and a few melon balls.
  3. Note: for simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water. For instance, bring 1/2 cup of each to a simmer in a saucepan while whisking. Turn off the heat and let it cool to room temperature!
