- 1/2 Enzed Exotics Kiwano
- 3 mint leaves
- 2 ounces or 60mls gin
- 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice (or about half a lemon)
- Ice cubes
Slice Kiwano in half. Take a knife and cut around the edges of the melon between the peel and the flesh. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh and place in cocktail shaker. Set aside the melon half. Add the mint leaves and muddle vigorously (muddle way more than you think – those little gelatin pods are not that interested in giving up their juice. MUDDLE!). Add gin and lemon juice. Shake with ice and strain in to melon half, or use a martini glass if you are too prissy to hold a prickly cup. Top with champagne. Garnish with a lemon or Kiwano slice.
