Melon Mojo cocktail

Melon Mojo

This is the end result of wanting a chill and refreshing summer cocktail and having a limited number of ingredients on hand. The honeydew was very ripe and needed to be used, so it became the basis of the mixed drink. I also had an abundance of mint in the garden and a nearly empty bottle of vodka.

My Mojo turned out pretty well. I hope you like it too. Sip slowly for greatest enjoyment.

And for those who want to know, Veev is an award-winning spirit crafted with acai berries from Brazil. Search our database for other cocktails made with Veev.
