The Honeydew Me Daiquiri gets its light green hue from fresh honeydew melon. That is exactly where it gets its fun name, too! The flavor is fresh and fantastically light. The Honeydew Me Daiquiri is ideal for spring and summer. Or put this drink on your “Honey do” list for Valentine’s Day. The light green color makes this a nice alternative cocktail choice for St. Patrick’s Day, Mardi Gras and Easter. Another great day to keep this seasonally fresh cocktail in mind…
July 19 is National Daiquiri Day. Grab your Honey and get mixing!

I use the Ninja blender system that comes with individual to-go cups for single serve drinks. The mess is minimal and they’re quick and easy for mixing smaller amounts. I’ve used the Ninja brand for years. It’s reliable and gets the heavy duty jobs done right. I usually use a small hand press juicer for small jobs, but if you’re thinking about juicing fresh fruit for large batches and parties, think about investing in a larger professional style juicer.
