These Cucumber Melon Gin Spritzers are the most refreshing summer cocktail! They’re made with a cantaloupe simple syrup, fresh mint, sliced cucumber, gin of course, and a splash of soda water!

Cantaloupe infused simple syrup, gin, cucumber slices, melon balls, mint, and seltzer come together in the most beautiful way. I almost always go for tequila based drinks, and sometimes vodka, but this one is changing my tune.

For the melon simple syrup
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 c. cantaloupe cubes or balls
For the cocktail
  • 2 oz. melon simple syrup
  • 1.5 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. seltzer water*
  • melon balls/cubes
  • cucumber slices
  • ice
  • fresh mint
  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil. Let boil for 30 seconds, remove from heat, and let cool completely. Once cooled, add to a blender or food processor with the cantaloupe cubes/balls. Blend until completely smooth.
  2. To make the drink, add ice to a cocktail shaker along with a fresh mint leaf. Add the simple syrup and gin, and shake for 30 seconds. Fill glass with ice, a few melon balls and cucumber slices, and then pour in the drink. Top with seltzer, stir to combine, and garnish with mint, and extra cantaloupe/cucumber slices!
