Frosty and refreshing, this is the perfect sipper to relax with. For those who wish to imbibe, an ounce of bourbon added to each drink turns this easy mocktail into a decadent cocktail.
1 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
1/2 cup (125 mL) fresh orange juice
1/4 cup (60 mL) fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) finely grated ginger
2 cups (500 mL) ice cubes
1/4 cup (60 mL) packed mint leaves, plus extra sprigs for garnish
Lime slices, optional
In blender, place cantaloupe chunks, orange juice, lime juice, ginger, and ice. Add mint and blitz briefly to chop leaves. Blend until smooth. Divide among serving glasses and garnish with lime wheels and mint sprigs, if desired.
Tip: For a frostier cooler, try freezing cantaloupe chunks overnight before making the recipe.
