An amazing blended tequila and cantaloupe cocktail drink—once you try one, you’ll be ready to blend up another! To keep your cocktail cold, place freezer-safe cocktail glasses in the freezer to chill in advance, or just plop an ice cube or two in the finished drink.
1/4 chilled cantaloupe, seeds removed
1 1/2 ounces silver/blanco tequila
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon agave nectar or simple syrup, to taste
Tiny pinch of sea salt
3 ice cubes
Use a big spoon to scoop the flesh of the cantaloupe from the skin. Place everything but the ice in the blender and blend until smooth. Add the ice and blend thoroughly.
Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lime round.
I salted the rim of my glass, but I felt like the saltiest sips overwhelmed the delicate taste of cantaloupe. Also, I recommend using 100% agave tequila, always!
