For some drinks, it is unsure what exact season or meal they are associated with, but the Melon Patch certainly doesn’t have that problem.

The bright and vibrant drink is most associated with spring, and is a perfect brunch drink that might not be as popular as the mimosa, but just might be giving it a run for its money. It’s light, but at the same time extremely flavuorful, as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of melon liqueur
  • ½ ounce of triple sec
  • 2 ounces of vodka
  • 4 ounces of club soda
  • Ice Cubes

Preparation:

  1. Pour the liqueur, triple sec, and vodka into the cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into the highball glass with ice cubes.
  4. Add the club soda.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Highball glass

A common garnish is an orange slice, for those who desire it. The club soda can be added as needed, and seltzer water can be a great alternative, as well. Midori is an obvious choice for the melon liqueur, and for those who want a little more flavour; they can use a fruit-infused vodka, as well. For brunch, many people also choose to serve the drink in champagne flutes, similar to mimosas. Some people also choose to actually add champagne instead of club soda, and garnish with watermelon slices rather than orange slices.

Of course, this all depends on whichever fruit you prefer. There are also variations of the drink where people choose to ad splashes of lemon juice, but of course, this is for those who don’t mind a little complexity to their drink. The beauty of the drink is that it can be served as a cocktail on the rocks, or as a brunch delight in a champagne flute. No matter where you are, how you enjoy it, or why you enjoy it, you may have found yourself a new favourite!
