It is officially the heart of summer and I don’t know about you, but I could use a refreshing drink right about now. With the sweltering heat and inescapable sunshine, I crave fresh ingredients and revitalizing flavors. I am thinking organic fruit, fresh herbs, and the farm-crafted deliciousness of Prairie Organic Spirits. So what do you say? Let’s beat the heat together with an invigorating glass of Honeydew Gin Fizz.
Fresh is the name of the game with this cocktail. There’s no better season to find a vast selection of organic ingredients to add to your drink, so today we’re going to utilize the most refreshing of the bunch. Honeydew melon, lemongrass, thyme, and lime are easy to find this time of year and go together quite wonderfully. Add to that the amazingly unique flavor profile of sage, juniper, and exotic spices found in Prairie Organic Gin and you’ve got yourself a stellar drink.
This actually a quite simple recipe to whip up, but let’s walk through it together. Puree 1/4th of a honeydew melon, 1 sprig of thyme, 1-inch cube of a lemongrass stalk, and 1 teaspoon of lime juice together in a blender.
Strain the honeydew puree into a bowl to remove large chunks.
Divide the honeydew puree evenly between two tumblers.
Add 2 ounces of Prairie Organic Gin to each glass. I highly recommend you use Prairie Organic Spirits for this recipe. From the stunning design of the bottles to the complex farm-crafted flavors, their passion for craftsmanship is undeniable. The organic gin and vodkas have a distinct, award-winning taste that its distillers and farmers have worked hard to differentiate. Their spirits are made through a detailed process that begins with the very best organic corn and farmers who are committed to quality. The process clearly ends with an impeccable product. Prairie Organic Vodkas and Gin are some of the most unique and complex spirits I have ever sampled in their categories.
Add ice and top off with tonic water.
Garnish with the leftover lemongrass stalks and thyme. Enjoy!
If mixing up a recipe isn’t your thing, then I suggest just pouring a glass of Prairie Organic Gin over ice and sipping to your heart’s content while marveling at the sage and juniper notes dancing along your tongue. It’s quite lovely! So, does a Honeydew Gin Fizz sound refreshing for a hot summer’s day? Let me know your thoughts and also shout out your favorite gin cocktail below.
