  • 1 cup pureed honeydew melon
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup 80-proof vodka
  • 4 drops green food coloring
  • 3 drops yellow food coloring
Do This

1. Puree the honeydew melon by first slicing 1/4 of the melon away from the rind. Remove the seeds and then slice the melon into big chunks. Put the chunks into a medium bowl and mash with a potato masher to create some juice. Pour the mashed melon and juice into a blender and blend on medium speed for 10 to 15 seconds or until pureed. Measure 1 cup of melon into a jar with a lid.

2. Add sugar, vodka, and food coloring to the jar. Cover and shake until sugar is dissolved.

3. Store liqueur at room temperature for a week, then strain the melon pulp from the liquid by pouring it through a paper towel–lined strainer.

Makes 2 cups.
