Out of the Ord - Honeydew
I thought it was about time that I create a wet season (summer, for the southerners) cocktail, and seeing as honeydew was this weeks crop for Out of the Ord it was meant to be.
This is inspired from my bartender days and an amazing watermelon cocktail I enjoyed at Eco Beach, south of Broome earlier this year.
I made a couple of different versions using all the Hoochery Rum in our cupboard - the Black Wax Premium Rum, the Kimberley Moon White Rum and the new 5 Rivers Spiced Rum and can recommend that Kimberley Moon white rum makes the best tasting Honeydew Mojito.
Yes - I know, that is a lot of rum choice in our cupboard- what can I say, we're fans!
I hope you enjoy the cocktail, Matt and I had this as a pre-drink to baking a freshly caught barramundi in an Asian glaze.
A refreshing cocktail made with farm fresh honeydew melon.
I worked on a standard nip - 30ml - per person
* If you don’t have a melon-baller, because let’s face it that’s a specialty item…. You can try a teaspoon, I used a tea2 teaspoon which worked good enough… You could also make this part ahead and freeze some melon balls to replace the ice used in the recipe.
** If you don’t have a cocktail shaker and muddling stick, a big plastic cup and a rolling pin will work…
*** As previously mentioned you can use frozen honeydew melon balls instead off ice – if you’re well prepared.
