Total Time:
5 mins


  • One 3 1/2-pound honeydew melon, halved and seeded (for 2 ounces fresh honeydew juice)

  • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice

  • 1/2 ounce orgeat (almond-flavored syrup)

  • Ice

  • 3 honeydew melon balls skewered on a pick, for garnish


  1. Chop the melon flesh and transfer to a blender. Puree until smooth. Strain the puree, without pressing on the solids, to extract clear green juice. Reserve 2 ounces of the juice and refrigerate the rest for another use. In a cocktail shaker, combine the 2 ounces melon juice with the citrus juices and orgeat. Fill the shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with the skewered melon balls.
