Do you bookmark and pin a lot of recipes to try?
A few days ago, I saw an Indonesian Melon drink posted by the very talented Lorraine from Not Quite Nigella. It looked so fancy, simple and so different, I couldn’t wait to make my version and it went right on top of my ‘to-make’ list. I am sure most of you know her by now, if not please do check her out, you will love her. I am always amazed at how much great food she puts out on her blog. Apart from her fabulous food, I admire her sense of humor and she is such wonderful person.
I am a big fan of fancy looking food, which requires less fussing around and this cocktail/dessert is just that. So here is an inspired float. Simple, stunning and bombdiggity, if I may say so myself:).
I used a bigger lemon zester to make thin noodles, you can check the video link I’ve attached for Lorraine’s blog to see how she creates the noodles. A spiralizer will work amazing too.
The melon is quite subtle, sweet, quite refreshing and juicy. The berry sorbet gives it the tartness like lemon to green juice or what salt does to cakes and cookies.
I am sure this one is going to make appearances in our parties for a while. Hope you get to try it out.
- ½ Cantaloupe
- ½ Honeydew Melon
- Blueberry Sorbet or Any tart berry sorbet
- Berry flavored Sparkling Cider
- First scoop the seeds out and extract the juice from it with the use of a strainer. Use a lemon zester or if you have a spiralizer, even better to make noodles out of the melon and cantaloupe. Put everything in the juice.
- Add the ¼ cup of the juice and some noodles in a glass and top with a scoop berry sorbet.
- Serve it either with some Sparkling cider or Prosecco. Both are fabulous.
Happy Valentines and Cheers to a beautiful weekend.
