I was at the markets on Sunday and I came across Bollo Santa Claus Melon so I have whipped up a Tuesday afternoon Spritz with it.
30mls @patron silver tequila
30mls freshly squeezed lime juice
50 grams Bollo Santa Claus Melon
@capisparkling to fill glass
I mixed all the ingredients together (except mineral water) along with some ice in @thermomixaus for 1 minute on speed 9. Double strain into your favorite cocktail glass and pour in mineral water. Gentle stir.
Result: this Melon is very sweet and it balanced well with the lime and mint. You could add orange liqueur if you want a bit more richness, I liked it as per above recipe. Salud!
