Once while in Italy, I saw people snacking on platters of prosciutto and cantaloupe, and the memory inspired this drink years later. People clamor for it at the beginning of summer, but I like to wait until the cantaloupes are super sweet and juicy.

Notes

Adapted from "North Star Cocktails: Johnny Michaels and the North Star Bartenders' Guild" by Johnny Michaels (Borealis Books, 2012)

Ingredients

For the cocktail

  • 1 1/2 ounce vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounce citrus vodka
  • 2 ounces fresh cantaloupe juice
  • 2 prosciutto-stuffed green olives on skewer
  • Ice

For the olive garnish

  • 2 green olives, pitted
  • 2 small pieces of thin prosciutto

Directions

For the cocktail

Add the liquid ingredients to a Boston tin half full of ice, swirl for a bit, and then strain into chilled martini glass. Lay skewer (see below for instructions) across the top of glass. 

For the olive garnish

 Roll pieces up in a cone shape, stick the pointy end in the olive, and try to have the extra ham flare out in a cool way. When skewering olives, pierce near the open end, so that the bottoms hang down in the drink and the flared prosciutto points upward.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
