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.
