  • Pour blackberry brandy into a martini glass; carefully spoon cantaloupe mixture over brandy, creating a contrasting orange layer.

Cook's Note:

I found the longer the cantaloupe froze the easier it is to make a layer of it in the glass. The first time making this I didn't need any sugar as the melon was perfect so definitely sample your melons to see if you would like to add sugar.

Made this for my mom on Friday night. She said it had a good punch, but the fruit kept it nice and light. The flavor was very good. I did not add the raw sugar to the drink, but I did rim the glass. It turned out to be very pretty. I found the process of freezing the slush to take the full hour, but once it was appropriately slushed up, it layered beautifully. I thought the brandy layer was very small in appearance compared to the orange, but the flavor turned out to be right. Read More
