Fuzzy Melon

Day 322

Fuzzy Melon
2 shots out of 5

With only a few more days left of Winter break, I am sort of getting sad that the kids will be going back to school soon.......which is odd because usually by now I'm counting down the days until school gets back in.  Speaking of days left of things, I only have 44, YES 44 days left until my Year Of Cocktails is complete.  That totally blows my mind, I swear I can remember when I was only 44 days into my blog.....and what cocktail was that on Day 44 you ask?  Well Alien Urine Sample of course and boy was it good!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2 shots out of 5.  I found this cocktail pinned on Pinterest and followed it to Make Me A Cocktail.  The first thing I noticed was that their cocktail was green and looking at the ingredients I had a huge feeling mind would be more on the lighter orange/darker yellow side.  Since I haven't really made too many cocktails with watermelon schnapps (one to be exact), I thought I'd give it a try anyways.  Sorry I did.  I still have hope that I will find a cocktail or two that has watermelon schnapps mixed in it that I will really like.  Fingers crossed.

Here is the recipe for a Fuzzy Melon:

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz peach schnapps
  • 1/2 oz watermelon schnapps
  • 1 1/2 oz orange juice
  • 1/2 oz pineapple juice
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a cocktail glass.

Here's to the first two days of 2013 flying by.

  1. I think they left out the "three drops blue food color" ingredient. There's no way those listed ingredients made that green drink. Although theirs does look more melon-y.

    1. Ha ha, they totally did leave out the "three drops blue food color" ingredient! Theirs does look more melon-y and when I saw it I thought there would be melon liquer like Midori in it or something. Boo.
