What you largely don't see here is the enormous amount of liquor we're taking. Much of it is being purchased for us in New Hampshire, the land of tax-free state liquor stores, but much is also currently in our refrigerator. That is because I've been making liqueur for two separate cocktails. I've already shown the strawberry liqueur here, but here's the melon. They're both equally easy to make. All you need is a little patience and you will be rewarded with a higher quality liqueur than you would typically get for a low price. For the amount of melon liqueur we need it would have been $60. Instead it cost us one cantaloupe and some vodka and sugar, which we already had. If you're interested in making your own, here is the recipe for the strawberry and here is the recipe for the melon. And, coincidentally, on Tuesday's episode we'll be showing how to make your own limoncello!
