Gordon’s Melon With Tequila & Lime

Gordon’s Melon With Tequila & Lime

  • 1 honeydew melon, preferably chilled
  • 2-3 tbsp cold tequila
  • Finely grated zest of 1/2 lime, plus extra to serve
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 2-3 tbsp runny honey
  • Tiny pinch of fine sea salt
  • Few mint sprigs (leaves only), chopped

Step 1: Halve the melon and remove the seeds with a spoon. Using a melon baller, scoop the flesh into neat balls and place in a large bowl.

Step 2: Mix the tequila, lime zest and juice, honey and salt together in a small pitcher. Taste and add a little more honey if dressing is too sour. Pour over the melon balls, toss gently to mix and chill for at least 10-15 minutes.

Step 3: Divide the melon balls among serving glasses, grate over some lime zest and sprinkle with freshly chopped mint to serve.
