It’s said that honeydew melons were held in high esteem for their sweet and juicy flavour by Cleopatra and the Egyptians and that they were even considered to be a sacred food. One of the earliest recorded mentions of the delicious melon was inscribed on an Egyptian tomb dating back to 2400 B.C. The melons were also beloved by the notorious Emperor Napoleon who managed to secure the delicious fruit before it became widely available in Europe - clearly one of the perks of being the Emperor.
Fortunately for us, the wonderful fruit is now widely available and is just the thing to bring a deliciously sweet and syrupy edge to this rose wine and aperitivo based spritz.
45ml Rosé wine
