I concocted this for a special visit from one of my BFFs, who lives nearly three thousand miles away and with whom, these days, I share way too few summer cocktails. She's a confident and creative mixologist, so I wanted to impress her. For the full story of this drink's creation (and a chance to name it and win something for your trouble), visit http://thesisterproject.com/orloff/the-official-cocktail-of-me.
cantaloupes, cut into 1 inch chunks
