Well, my last two days of bed rest here in the homestead have helped a bit. I don't feel as congested, but still have the cough. Hopefully I can shake that in the next day or so. You'd think by the look of the drink in the picture above that I was making myself some kind of crazy home remedy. Although it packs a vodka punch, it didn't cure my cough. I can attest that it tastes much better than it looks (I think I over blended)!
Mint: had (from my garden)
FAST: It took me about 5 minutes to cut up the melon and squeeze the lime juice. Then, you just blend everything in a blender which didn't take more than 30 seconds! Super Fast!
EASY: Cutting up the melon was the hardest part of this whole recipe. Just zip zap the rest in the blender.
FRESH: Mmm..nothing like ripe cantaloupe and fresh mint with a smack of vodka. DEE-LISH!
OVERALL: I haven't met a drink I didn't like. Well, except for Campari. This was really nice and refreshing. Perfect for hot summer days. I suppose you could use any kind of fresh fruit or melon. I happened to have lemon vodka, but I suppose a raspberry or blueberry flavored vodka would work well too! Brian gives this a thumbs up. He says that it would also be good sans the alcohol.
Alrighty, we've got some puff pastry twists for the weekend. See ya then!
