If you all didn’t know yet, this week we celebrated National Melon Day! To continue the celebration we picked Houston Mixologist Leslie Ross’ brain to come up with a sophisticated, refreshing, summertime cocktail that will have you saying Hi-Ball, not melon ball the next time you hit the bar.
Combine 1 part Midori Melon Liqueur and 1 part Hibiki Japanese Harmony Whisky into a chilled highball glass with ice. Stir and top with sparkling mineral water. Stir again and garnish with a melon ball and a wide lemon peel.
