have a drink!

Melon Rumballa
Makes about 8 cocktails
  • 3–4 ripe melons, depending on size
  • 1/2 liter white rum
  • 1 bunch fresh mint, cleaned and stemmed
  • 3 limes juiced
  • 8 oz ginger soda
  • 8 oz coconut water
  • sugar for rimming the glasses
  • ice

1. Start with white or vanilla rum (yum). 
2. Use a melon baller to make your balls, place in the freezer a full hour before serving. If juice from the melons is left over, this can be added to the drink.
3. Muddle mint sprigs and lime juices until well combined.
4. In a pitcher, add muddled mint (and juices), lime juice, rum, ginger soda and coconut water and stir together. 
5. At this point, taste your drink to see what it needs.For more sweetness, we suggest more ginger soda, melon juice or even some simple sugar or pineapple juice. To reduce the sweetness, consider adding a touch more lime juice.
6. Prepare glasses: Run a lime wedge around the rim of each glass and dip in sugar. Add icy melon balls to each glass to fill half way. 
7. Just before serving, drop in a handful of ice along with icy melon balls into your pitcher and stir.
8. Pour into glasses and drink.
