People are over their gourds about stone fruit right now, and with good reason. This year's nectarines have been some of the best I've ever tasted! I don't know if it's a mix of the cheapness and us not having air conditioning, but I'm enjoying melons of all colors as much as I can right now.
One of my favorite things to do right now is mix sparkling lime water, a little ice, and whatever melon I have lying around. Today, it's Juan Canary. Usually my heart belongs to watermelon,but these Juan Canarys give the icy drink a smooth and creamy, silky, almost milky texture that's just so awesome. If I were going to spike this, I'd probably give the vodka a rest and use a little sparkling moscato instead. Just sayin'. . .
