Mint-Melon Spritzers are a cool and refreshing beverage perfect for summer time.
I am not exactly adjusting to this mega-hot summer, so I need constant refreshment. It was fun to change it up a bit with a spritzer. I had an abundance of cantaloupe that was really ripe and sweet and it was a great way to enjoy one of my very favorite fruits. I hope to get some planted next spring and grow my own.
One nice thing about the mega-hot summer is that it is perfect weather for boating. We are off to the lake this weekend for some more fun on the pontoon boat. Do you have big plans? I’d love to hear about them! In the meantime, enjoy these Melon-Mint Spritzers!
