Cantaloupe Martini

This sweet drink will delight melon lovers and it pairs very well with salty foods. I think it would also be a great companion for brunch in lieu of a mimosa.

from: 101 Martinis
makes: 1 martini

3 ounces fresh cantaloupe juice (from a juicer-1 cantaloupe makes enough for 4 to 5 martinis)
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce Midori
1/2 ounce simple syrup
splash of lemon juice
melon balls, for garnish

Combine the cantaloupe juice, vodka, Midori, simple syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a skewer of melon balls.
