The beautiful currants we got in our share this week turned out to be surprisingly tart and made my eyelid twitch and my face get all squished. So we tried cutting the sour with honeydew – as it is quickly approaching melon season – and making a summery party drink.
We chopped up a third of a melon, took a few handfuls of currants, a squeeze of honey, four or five ice cubes, vodka, and blended. Then garnished with basil and extra berries and proceeded to celebrate. Celebrate what? Name it.
