These delicious fruits are bursting with flavour during the warmer months, if you can’t find a cantaloupe any round version will do – Persian or Honeydew.


  • 1 orange cantaloupe melon
  • 300 mL white rum
  • 6 tablespoon(s) castor sugar
  • 2 big juicy lemons, squeezed
  • 1 handful of ice cubes per glass


Step 1

Slice the melon into thin wedges. Lay in a flat rectangular shaped container and drizzle with the rum. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours (2-4 if possible) so that the melon can soak up the booze.

Step 2

In a cocktail shaker, mix the sugar with the lemon juice and shake until dissolved. Add the rum from the melons, and shake to mix

Step 3

Divide the mixture between the long glasses, and add a few slices of the melon to each glass. Top with crushed ice and use the melon slices as a swizzle stick. Sip slowly!
