Other than making fruit salad, not many people know what do with honeydew. With a distinctly refreshing flavor, the fruit gives a delicious twist to an otherwise classic mojito. Try it at home with this recipe from NoMa Social’s Michael DeFalco. You might wonder why you’ve never made a melon cocktail before.


  • 1 cup cubed honeydew melon
  • 1½ ounces Soltado Tequila
  • Fresh mint leaves, plus 1 sprig
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • Splash of soda water
  • 1 ounce simple syrup

Directions: Blend melon until completely smooth. Muddle some mint leaves in a shaker. Add tequila, simple syrup, lime juice, and honeydew purée. Shake well to combine and pour over ice. Top with soda water and stir gently. Garnish with a mint sprig and serve.
