Frozen Honeydew Daiquiris made with fresh honeydew melon, white rum, agave syrup, and lime. Gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free.
This summer I fully realized how much I enjoy rum-based cocktails. My warm-weather drink of choice has always been the tried-and-true gin and tonic, but while in New Orleans last month, we took a rum distillery tour, and it made me reassess my desire for all things rum.
On our end-of-summer last-hurrah road trip to Colorado, we spent an evening on a mountain bar patio sipping the most delicious honeydew concoction. It was fresh, slightly sweet, and it had me at hello.
Today, thanks to Sherrie of With Food + Love, several bloggers have gotten together to share the best cocktails and non-alcoholic summer drinks so that we can all #DRINKTHESUMMER. So I’ve collided my new affinity for rum with my new love of honeydew to brightly flavor a sweet, boozy cocktail with this recipe for frozen honeydew daiquiris.
These frozen honeydew daiquiris couldn’t be easier. Use a fresh honeydew melon and cube the fruit, or for a super-fast cocktail fix-up, buy the fresh pre-cut honeydew at your local grocery store. Throw the ingredients in a blender, and you are seconds away from sweet refreshment.
