Refreshing Melon and Honeydew Cocktail with Lime and Gin

I’m a huge fan of watermelon cocktails for their refreshingly sweet taste and vibrant color.

But if you’ve never tried any other melon cocktails before, you’re missing out!

They’re sweet, smooth, and super scrumptious.

Even without the booze, these cantaloupe and honeydew melon cocktails will be a hit at any backyard bash.

17 Best Melon Cocktails Recipes and Ideas

1. Fresh Honeydew Margarita

I had to start with my go-to summer drink (because you must know by now I’m a marg-fanatic!).

There’s nothing better than a cool margarita on a hot day. And while I love the classics, this honeydew recipe is insanely good.

Every sip is cool, crisp, and oh-so-refreshing.

Best of all, you only need three ingredients! And don’t forget to salt your rim for an unforgettable treat.

2. Honeydew Martini 

The bright green color of this next drink isn’t the only thing you’ll love about this pretty martini

You’ll also appreciate the light and breezy combination of honeydew puree, lime juice, Triple Sec, and champagne.

Whether you need a drink for your next St. Paddy’s Day bash or just want something to cool you off by the pool, this recipe will serve you well.

3. Cantaloupe Basil Coolers

If there’s only one drink you make this summer, let it be this cantaloupe and basil cooler.

Trust me, you’ll adore the refreshing sweetness of the fruit with the herbal kick of the basil.

All you need is some basil-infused vodka and pureed melon. Mix it over ice and enjoy!

4. Honeydew Mojitos 

Do you love all things mojito? If the answer is yes, this cocktail is for you.

Every sip hits you with a wave of invigorating minty flavors, balanced out by a sugary honeydew.

You’ll love the flavor almost as much as the stunning green color, making it a great warm-weather drink for any occasion.

5. Cantaloupe Grapefruit Martini

This summer bevy is the perfect drink for entertaining guests on your deck. 

You can easily prepare a large batch of cantaloupe-infused vodka ahead, making drink prep a breeze.

The added grapefruit tones down the fruity sweetness, making this martini super well-balanced and pretty to boot.

6. Strawberry Melon Fizz

The next time you need a great mocktail, try out this strawberry and melon fizz.

You won’t believe how easy it is to make; just combine chopped fruit with sugar, water, and ginger ale, and voila!

Every sip cools you down with revitalizing, sugary flavors, making this the perfect bevy for balmy days.

And it’s beyond easy to make it boozy. Just add a glug (or three) or your favorite white rum or vodka.

7. Ginger Cantaloupe Sangria

If you want to take your taste buds to the spa, you can’t beat this sangria.

You’ll create this cool drink using white wine, triple sec, and fruit. Then there’s a lightly spiced ginger simple syrup to give it a kick.

The edible flowers are optional, but let’s be honest: they’re too pretty to leave out.

8. Honeydew Daiquiri

Are you looking for a light, chilled cocktail to pair with a heavy meal? This honeydew daiquiri will fit the bill.

Ready to be poured in under five minutes, it’s ideal for late nights in.

All you need is honeydew, agave syrup, light rum, and key lime juice to create this fantastic bevy. (use regular lime juice if you can’t find key limes.)

9. Honeydew Basil Spritzer

Here’s another melon cocktail with basil, only this version is sweeter and bubblier!

Honeydew and basil go together like peanut butter and jelly. You’ll love how the basil adds a savory brightness to the sticky-sweet honeydew.

The combination of sauvignon blanc, basil, and melon is guaranteed to make your mouth water. 

And while the recipe suggests soda water to make it a spritz, I like to use citrus seltzer for a boost of flavor.

10. Honeydew Melon Bellini

Peach Bellinis are a thing of beauty. But I think you’ll really enjoy this melon twist on the classic.

The honeydew Bellini is just as fruity, but it’s less sweet. And I find that means I can enjoy more!

Every slurp unleashes a flurry of sparkling, sugary bubbles on your palate, making you instantly crave another sip. 

11. Melon Gin and Tonic

Are you craving an exhilarating cocktail to cool you down?

This melon gin and tonic might become your new favorite after a little too much fun in the sun.

You’ll love how melon’s sticky sweetness blends with gin’s floral flavors.

Plus, look how pretty it is! Who wouldn’t want one of these show-stopping green drinks? 

12. 4-Ingredient Citrus & Melon Spritzer

Can you believe this striking drink only contains four ingredients? 

That’s right, to make this sizzling summertime spritzer, all you have to do is combine honeydew melon, lime juice, cane sugar, and club soda.

Toss in a couple of cherries or a few slices of cucumber as a garnish, and you’re all set.

 13. Mixed Melon & Limoncello Sangria

I was lucky enough to spend some time in Italy this summer. And when I tell you I drank my weight in Limoncello, I’m not kidding!

But this melon and lemon sangria might be my new favorite way to drink this Italian liquor.

Between the mint leaves, melon, and Pinot Grigio, it’s bright, light, and wonderfully refreshing.

So, the next time you have guests coming over, do them a favor and make this easy, breezy sangria. I know I will!

14. Honey Deuce

Do you want to taste the official drink of the 2021 U.S Open? If so, read on!

A stunning blend of Chambord, lemonade, and vodka, this magnificent cocktail is just what you need for cooling off after a few rounds of tennis.

Don’t forget the honeydew melon balls for the garnish!

15. Japanese Slipper Cocktail 

If you don’t like the taste of booze but still want to indulge in a fancy cocktail, then you’ll appreciate the Japanese Slipper.

Every sip punches your palate with fruity sweetness, thanks to the combination of melon liquor, Triple Sec, and lemon juice.

Since there’s no base liquor such as vodka or rum, you can enjoy a light buzz without the harsh flavor of booze.

16. Honeydew-Coconut Cocktails

Every time winter rolls around, I long for the warm, salty breeze of the ocean.

Luckily, this cocktail transports you to the tropics with just one sip – no plane ticket required!

Every mouthful contains refreshing honeydew melon, coconut, and rum. It’s a wave of tropical tastes I know you’ll love.

I guarantee this as a cure for those winter blues.

17. Cantaloupe Margaritas

Did I save the best for last? You tell me!

This cantaloupe margarita is my summer cocktail dreams come true. It’s sweet, citrusy, and loaded with melony goodness.

It’s ideal for that leftover melon you have in the fridge. And all you need to do is blitz it until smooth, then strain the pulp.

How easy is that?
