Lately, I have been having a blast mixing together different drinks and adding wine. One of my favorite shots in college was a melon ball which is a lovely bright green which is usually vodka, melon liquor, and topped with a splash of orange juice or pineapple. I twisted the recipe to make it a more of poolside summer drink that will make you smile all day long.
My concoction is can either be filled with pieces of balled melon using a melon baller or muddle pineapple like I used. I would have totally added the melon balls just for visual interest, but my melon baller went missing. I suspect it is covered in Play Doh some where after my daughter helped me ball my last melon.
First, I started with 1/2 cup of vodka and added 1/4 cup melon liquor. Then, I added in diced pineapple and proceeded to muddle it in the glass with ice tongs. You can use a muddler designed specifically for muddling. Next, I added sauvignon blanc on top to make 12 ounces with of drink and fruit.
This Melon Ball Wine Punch is extremely easy to make and perfect for summer since it is filled with flavor and has such an amazing and appealing color! The green looks so cute by the pool!

2 oz Vodka
2 oz Melon Liquor
4 oz Diced Pineapple, muddled
4 oz Sauvignon Blanc
Diced and muddle the fresh pineapple in a large shaker.
Add 1 part melon liquor, 1 part vodka, 2 parts sauvignon blanc white wine.
Mix in the shaker.
Strain and pour over ice.
My this a sparkling wine punch by replacing the sauvignon blanc with a light dry sparkling wine. You don’t want the wine or sparkling wine to be too sweet because the cocktail will become super sweet. The balance is better so that the melon and fruit can shine.
