Toast The End Of Summer With A Raspberry Melon Cocktail
Grey Goose has given us one of their favorite summertime cocktail recipes (they serve a ton of them at the U.S. Open tennis tournament), and I figured this weekend, as L.A. finally transitions into fall, was the perfect time to serve it and say goodbye to a lovely summer. Plus, melons are really great right now.
Raspberry Melon Cocktail
16 parts vodka (Grey Goose recommends their own brand, of course)
32 parts freshly squeezed lemonade
8 parts Chambord® or premium raspberry liqueur
Honeydew melon balls
Add lemonade, vodka and Chambord to a large pitcher filled with crushed ice and stir well. Pour into highball glasses filled with ice and garnish with melon balls.
