Cocktail Craving: Melon Mule

It’s the end of patio season, which means you’ll need an easy-to-fix cocktail for brunch in the sun, or evenings of entertaining on the deck. Luckily there’s the Melon Mule, which blends cucumber, honeydew, and mint with the classic Bombay Sapphire gin. Bombay Sapphire’s 10 botanicals including juniper berries, citrus, and orris root, make it a fragrant–and smooth–compliment to refreshing ingredients.


1.5 parts Bombay Sapphire

2 tablespoons honeydew

2 slices cucumber

6-8 leaves and one sprig fresh mint

.5 parts agave

.75 parts lime juice

1.5 parts ginger beer


Muddle the cucumber first, and then muddle again with honeydew. Clap the mint and add it to the shaker along with Bombay Sapphire, agave, and lime juice. Strain over ice into a Collins glass and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a cucumber ribbon and fresh mint.
