Give honeydew the love it deserves in this herbaceous and minty summer cocktail.
melon | gin | cocktail
Oft-maligned honeydew melon stars in this highball alongside Bitter Bianco—a spirit that Luxardo brought to market in 2017 due to consumer demand for a perfectly clear bitter ingredient to make a perfectly clear White Negroni. Bitter Bianco is more herbal and spicy than its Campari and Aperol cousins, and here it serves as a nice complement to gin and Green Chartreuse.
