It’s finally Saturday! Or if your stuck at home during the quarantine, it’s just “day”. During your zoom party tonight, try out this awesome drink to get the party started. Day 3 of my Drinking Around the World at home leads me to the China Pavilion.

China:  Canto Loopy

This was a drink that I was originally hesitant to try. The colors looked appetizing, but I couldn’t imagine drinking a beverage where the main ingredient was cantaloupe juice! But, the “punny” (trying to make “fetch” happen here with the combination of the words pun and funny) name got me hooked and WOW did this drink take me by surprise!!! It’s very light and refreshing, and a perfect drink for spring and summer. You can find this drink at Joy of Tea.

  • Ingredients:
    • 2 oz vodka
    • 4 oz cantaloupe juice
    • 1/2-3/4 oz simple syrup
    • 1/4 oz lime juice
    • mint garnish
  • Juice a cantaloupe. I used a juicer, but you can use a blender and strain the solids.
  • Add all ingredients into a shaker except the mint.
  • Shake and strain into a glass with ice.
  • Add mint to the glass for garnish.

Stay tuned for the next drink around the world: (Bonus Drink) from the African Trading Post.
