Low Country Sunset

So many times fruit goes bad quickly. Sometimes I feel like I need a science degree to know exactly when a melon is ripe. This one went fast, so rather than throw it out, I cut it into chunks, puréed it and push it through a sieve. Keep mashing and mashing, the juice will continue to come out. A half a melon should give you enough for 2 drinks.

You will need:

1 1/2 oz vodka

1/2 oz elderberry liquor

1 tsp simple syrup

1 1/2 oz melon juice


Fill a cocktail shaker up with ice, add all the ingredients and shake for atleast 30 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass. I garnished with a sage leaf but you can use basil, I just like the green contrast.
