Honeydew Melon Mojito

Melon Mojito - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineAnother St. Patrick’s Day. Another reason to celebrate. So here I am, in the middle of a rain storm that literally has Southern California under water, combining my favorite rum cocktail with the green that identifies the Irish and their saint patron, who happens to be the patron of the imbibers, and creating this delicious melon mojito!

Melon Mojito - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineI must confess that when I was thinking about this drink, I chose it because of the St.Patrick related color.

Melon Mojito - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineThe beautiful bright green color comes from melon liquor Midori. Because I love fresh ingredients I muddled some honeydew melon with the spearmint. No need to say this mojito is going to be a spring-summer favorite!

May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you!
