    It's very easy to make your own liqueurs that are almost identical to the shop bought versions. Pureeing the melon before adding to the vodka is the secret to this recipe's success.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 1/4 honeydew melon - peeled, seeded, and cubed
    • 1 cup (250ml) vodka
    • 3/4 cup (185g) white sugar
    • 4 drops green food colouring
    • 3 drops yellow food colouring

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Extra time:7days soaking  ›  Ready in:7days15min 

    1. Place the honeydew in a bowl and mash until some of the juice is released; pour into a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth, 10 to 15 seconds. Measure 1 cup of the melon puree and pour into a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Add vodka, sugar and green and yellow food colouring. Cover and shake until the sugar is dissolved. Store at room temperature for 1 week.
    2. Strain the melon mixture into a bowl through a paper towel-lined sieve to remove any solid bits. (You may need to do this multiple times.) Pour the vodka into a bottle and seal until ready to use.
