Serves: 6 

  • 1-2 ripe cantaloupe/rockmelons (substitute or mix with honeydew melons, if you wish)
  • 1 tbsp caraway seeds
  • 175-350 ml dry gin, amount according to your taste

Preparation:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Halve the melon or melons and scoop out the seeds. Slice off the ends, then cut each half lengthways into 4 crescent slices. Cut the flesh away from the skin, then chop into bite-sized pieces, and divide between serving dishes or goblets.
  2. Using a mortar and pestle, lightly bruise the caraway seeds to release the scent and flavour. Place them in a small saucepan with the gin. Warm the gin slightly, pour over the melon and serve immediately.
