Nobody said you have to eat all your fruits and veggies. Our Cucumber-Honeydew Cooler is a fresh, summery cocktail that incorporates—you guessed it—cucumber and honeydew. It’s easy to make and completely out of the box if your go-to warm-weather beverages are rosé and margaritas. Now, we know what you’re thinking: “Cucumber and honeydew sounds like the beginning of a delicious . . . salad.” We get it. But you’ll actually use these unexpected ingredients to make a sweetened, fresh juice. First, you’ll chop the cucumber and cube the melon into a blender, along with a cup of water and a little sugar. Then you’ll fine-strain the puree, saving the juice and tossing the solids. Combine your cucumber-honeydew juice with a floral gin (we like Hendrick’s) and serve over ice. (Hint: Stemless wine glasses with cucumber ribbons looped inside make an especially pretty presentation.) We think you’ll agree that a Cucumber-Honeydew Cooler makes the perfect sipper for late-afternoon porch swinging. Cheers, y’all.
