The Melon Ball cocktail is a popular and easy to drink cocktail that tastes like spring. It makes use of a few select ingredients to bring you a drink that will have you out on your deck in a lawn chair in no time.

How to Make a Melon Ball Cocktail

For this recipe, you will need a melon baller (if you wish to make nice garnishes, that is) as well as the following ingredients:

  • Vodka
  • Orange Juice
  • McGuinness Melon Liqueur (or comparable)
  • Melon for garnish

You can get a melon baller here for the cost of a cup of coffee (nowadays anyway.. ):

I love making my cocktails in vintage barware such as this amazing Ring Necked Pheasant glass mug of mine. I have several of these and if you’ve ever seen my Instagram account, you’ll know I have an obsession with bird glasses.

Anyway, I know you are itching to know how to make this so I’ll get to the recipe in a moment but I do want to point out that if you are looking for vodka cocktails, I have a great list of them right here that you should check out: 6 Excellent Vodka Cocktails You Need To Try.

Here’s the recipe, safe drinking!
