Melon Lime Daiquiri

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • .5 cup chopped Yellow And Honeydew Melon
  • 1 ounce Brown Sugar Syrup
  • 1 ounce Maraschino Liqueur
  • 1 ounce Lime Juice
  • 2 ounces White Rum
  • Sprigs of Mint (Garnish)

Muddle the melon, Brown Sugar Syrup, maraschino liqueur, and lime juice together in a container. Add the rum and ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the fresh mint.

I invented this drink to go with chef Andre Guerrero's chilean sea bass at Linq Restaurant in Los Angeles, California.
