After a long and exhausting day of back to school shopping (and the sticker shock from the purchased school supplies), I really needed a "mommy drink" or two or even three! I was craving a Midori concoction but was out. Thank goodness I remembered I still had some fresh white honeydew from the farmers market that I could use. Let me just say that this white honeydew is the sweetest thing that has passed through these lips all summer - yum! However, as wonderful as this melon is, I do NEED a light libation to get me through dinner prep.
After blending honeydew, cantaloupe, a splash of orange juice, ice & a squeeze of lime, I needed to decide what type of liquor to add to take this summer cooler over the top. So many choices that I couldn't decide so I added several. After about an ounce each of vodka, tequila, gin & a splash of white zinfandel, I believe I had my drink! The melon cooler reminded me of a Long Iced Tea because I couldn't taste any of the alcohol! So good yet has the potential to be dangerous if I drink too many!
Perfect way to unwind while I grilled burgers loaded with fresh veggies (yes, there is a burger under it all) for dinner. What a great summer meal!
