Hendrick's & Honeydew

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

James • Philadelphia

Honeydew melon was in season when Kristina Burke and her husband, chef Jim Burke, opened their restaurant, so they decided to use it in a drink. The cucumber and rose flavors in Hendrick's gin balance the melon's almost unctuous sweetness.

  1. 7 medium honeydew melon balls
  2. 1 1/2 ounces gin, preferably Hendrick's
  3. Ice
  4. 1 ounce chilled tonic water
  5. 1 thyme sprig
  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle 4 of the honeydew balls with the gin. Add ice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and stir in the chilled tonic water. Garnish with the remaining 3 honeydew balls and the thyme sprig.
