CANTALOUPE DRINK OVERVIEW
When I was young, my momsy used to make her favorite fruity drink called Melon Sa Malamig (Filipino Cantaloupe Drink). Melon Sa Malamig means “Cold Melon Drink” in Tagalog. She used to tell me that the Melon Sa Malamig Drink was served by street vendors in the provinces in the Philippines. Those vendors would serve the melon drink in plastic bags with a straw. Practically, every drink were served in a plastic bag because of the poor economy then.
My momsy would make these herself in a big pitcher. It’s almost like having an Agua Fresca – a Mexican Refreshing drink. She used a scraper to make long stringy strands of the melon. I remembered that her melon drink was so delicious during my summer vacations from school back then!
Well now, I decided to take that idea of using melons (cantaloupes) and create a tropical alcoholic drink. I hope most of you are of age – 21 and over!
BEHIND THE CANTALOUPE DROP NAME
Cause you gotta DROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT Tootz!
Back in my alcoholic clubbing days, I used to order a Surfer on Acid Shot or a Lemon Drop Shooter cause it’s easier and sweeter to swallow. Ordering those type of shots was called a “DROP” in my lingo.
But really, I was going to call this “Melon Drop Mule”. Knowing that you Tootz are mainly from the United States, you’ll probably be confused between the Melon vs. Cantaloupes terms. Most Filipinos (such as my Momsy and family members) will call Cantaloupes, “Melons”. So, I’m not going to go in detail between the fiberous exterior skins of the types of melons.
