Cantaloupe Seltzer Daiquiri Recipe
Summertime is here, and you can't end it without a fabulous cocktail! Cantaloupe Seltzer Daiquiri is an exquisite beverage that you can enjoy with its beautiful color and divine taste.
If you're a fan of the American sitcom,Friends, this cocktail will bring you back to when Susan tells Ross that Carol's milk tastes like "cantaloupe juice."
1½ cups Cantaloupe cubes
1/4 cup Sugar
2 tbsp. Freshly-squeezed lemon juice
2 oz. Silver rum
3 oz. Cantaloupe puree
1½ oz. Simple syrup
1 oz. Maraschino cherry juice
Splash of lime juice
Splash of hard seltzer (orange, kiwi, strawberry, or raspberry)
Lime wedge and melon balls for garnish
Combine the cantaloupe, sugar, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor.
Blend to a smooth consistency for about 30 seconds.
Pour the mixture into an airtight container by filtering it using a cheesecloth or a fine-mesh strainer.
Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rum, cantaloupe puree, simple syrup, and cherry juice.
Shake for 30 seconds, then pour the mixture into your favorite glass.
Add a splash of lime juice and your chosen hard seltzer.
Garnish with a skewered lime wedge and melon balls.
If you don’t have cantaloupe, you may substitute the recipe for the purée with honeydew melon. Remember that honeydew melon is a bit sweeter than cantaloupe, so adjust your sugary ingredients accordingly.
