"A delicious blended ice drink of cantaloupe and gin. This made me one BIG all night drink but divide into 2 or 4 as desired. Of course you can adjust everything to your liking and blender size. Make sure to use the juiciest and ripest fruit you can get." — bawkbagawk

cantaloupe - peeled, seeded and cubed
1 1/2 cups
white sugar, or to taste
I must say this was different and interesting. I happened to love cantalope and gin and the 2 went well with eachother. It had an interesting twist to it. Thanks and i will make it again.
I like cantaloupe and I like gin, but this drink didn't do it for me. A bit too plain I think.
Try adding some frozen lemonade or limeade concentrate...you'll love the slight tartness that it adds.
I reduced the sugar, but added half a can of 7Up to the mixture. It diluted the strength of the gin, and blended the flavors much better than originally written.
Good for a summer bar-be-que!
Where's the fizz??
We used vodka, because I hate gin (or at least I hear I do). Add Orange juice and a little pinch of cinnamon! I serve it now at work, bartending.
Not terribly good. It wasn't sweet enough so I threw in some Splenda. I ended up topping it off with mandarin-flavored sparkling water; this was quite nice, but not something I would want again. Thanks anyway.
Gin lovers BEWARE! This was absolutely awful. I used the sweetest cantaloupe I've ever had and it still was bitter. "If only I had listened to other reviewers!" Live and learn I guess.
