So I asked an Indian friend who is a chef to teach me how to make a cocktail over there and it was Cantaloupe frosè he brought up. The major ingredients being cantaloupe and rosè wine.
Cantaloupes have a tan-green rind and are a form of melon. The rind is generally coated in a spiderweb pattern, but some types are also striped. The flesh is light orange and sweet on the inside. Other common melons, such as watermelons and honeydew melons, have similar growing requirements. Cantaloupe contains Vitamins A, C and E.
A rosé is a wine that contains some color from the grape skins but not enough to be classified as a red wine. Rosé wine is made by juicing red grapes and then soaking the juice with the skins for a short period of time, typically two to three days. The skins are removed as soon as the juice starts to take on the beautiful pink color that the winemaker desires, and the juice is allowed to ferment, producing delicious rosé.
Since you must freeze your cantaloupe ahead of time, this cocktail takes some time to prepare. In frozen cocktails, I strongly advise against using plain water ice cubes because they can dilute the flavor! Instead, use frozen fruit or cocktail mixers to achieve the desired slushy texture.
Since the rosé wine I like is a little on the drier side, this recipe calls for a little bit of sweetener (2 tablespoons honey), but if you have super sweet melons and love a sweet rosé, you can easily make this cocktail without a speck of added sugar.
1. 1 medium size cantaloupe, seeds and rind removed, cut into chunks and frozen until solid.
2. Juice of one lime.
3. 0-4 tablespoons of honey, to taste, depending on the sweetness of your melon and wine.
4. 1 750mL bottle of your favorite rosé wine.
4. Fresh mint sprigs for garnishing.
1. In the carafe of a big, strong blender, combine the cantaloupe, lime juice, honey, and rosé. Blend on high speed until completely smooth.
2. Garnish with mint and serve in glasses.
3. Enjoy your drink!
