Cantaloupe Daiquiri

After a head-splitting week of the house being torn apart while the wood flooring was being replaced, yesterday I came home to an oven ripped out of the wall, a backed up sink and a toilet in my living room.

I’m not sure what’s worse, the misplaced toilet or the broke down oven—germ freak out or work related melt down.

Can you hear me screaming? No—well, I don’t want to hear me screaming or whining anymore either, so let’s do this: Cantaloupe Daiquiri. No umbrella, no crushed ice, just the traditional daiquiri ratio filled out with some pureed cantaloupe for a little summer time sip. And alright, more to the point, it was the only way I could convince Matt to join me for one. He’s not a fan of the traditional daiquiri or the big icy one, but he loves this version.

As for all the house troubles, I’m holding my breath and hoping for at least a functional oven by tomorrow. If not, well—there’s always begging, pleading and little bribery with this drink for an hour of oven time in the neighbor’s kitchen.

    I should make this for my sister, she is also going through house renovations. Her bath room has caused more problems than first thought, ever… Flooding in the house, it was like noah’s ark…

    I hope you get your oven soon. I can not wait for you to bake in it again!

    This is such a fresh, simple, clean image, maybe the renovation is pushing your creative boundaries a little? 😉 It’s the weekend and what a great way to start with a cocktail!

    This tastes like a daiquiri. With mashed up cantaloupe in it. Sort of anticlimactic… I was hoping for more cantaloupe flavor. And, yes, I used a fresh, very flavorful and juicy cantaloupe. It was just overpowered by the lime. I’m going to try without next. Maybe some ice.
