Once More with the Honeydew

Armed with loads of Orange Honeydew Syrup from the Tequila Melon Julep we made a few weeks ago, it just made sense to play with it a bit more before sacrificing to the Gods of the Kitchen Sink.

This week’s cocktail is an attempt to make a simple Whiskey Sour variation, pairing the melon with whiskey to see if it’d play as nicely with a brown spirit as it did with the Tequila.


The resulting cocktail is very good. I wouldn’t say it’s taking many risks – no bitterness, no strong herbal qualities, and no advanced palate required. But it’s a tasty drink that’s likely to please just about anyone. And that works pretty well for me!
