Thornton melon-ball

  • Ice
  • 60ml your favourite vodka
  • 60ml melon liqueur
  • Orange juice
  • Various melon balls (cantaloupe, honeydew or watermelon)
1) If making the drink straight up, add the ice, vodka, melon liqueur, and a splash of orange juice to a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously to combine. Strain into a large, chilled martini glass and garnish with melon balls.

2) If making the drink on the rocks, fill a rocks glass with ice. Add the vodka, melon liqueur and enough orange juice to fill the glass. Stir with either a stirrer or straw. Garnish with the melon balls.

Cook's Note: Obviously this drink was inspired by the classic cocktail The Melon Ball and the classic 1986 Rodney Dangerfield movie Back to School.
