Melon Gin Sour

by James Stevenson

I am using melons to make all my cocktails these days. Melons and gin are a great combo so today I am sharing a fabulous twist on a sour. I have taken cantaloupe and watermelon and made them into a fun gin sour. I have used the amazing Martin Miller’s Gin, which is made from 10 botanicals that are blended with Icelandic water. This is seriously one of the best gins that I have ever had so it’s no surprise that it made such a tasty cocktail. Start your Monday with melon!
