The Story Behind The Melon Collins
Undercote, a stylish cocktail den beneath NYC’s Cote steakhouse, serves a refreshing long drink, Big Melons in Little Collins. We adapted it slightly for home bartenders. The flavors and presentation are elegant, especially if you break out the melon baller and skewer some fruit as a garnish. (Of course, that's entirely optional.)
Best of all, the rubric is surprisingly versatile. No honeydew melons? Try cucumber.
