When my then partner dropped a few threads of Saffron in to a fifth of Vodka, I was eager to get mixing. The Azamelon is an earthy sweet and sour cocktail--not to be confused with an earthy Sweet & Sour cocktail. :)

Created: June 2008

Served: Up

2 oz. Saffron Infused Vodka
1 oz. Lemon Juice
1 oz. Midori

Garnish: Lemon Twist

Shake ingredients together, serve up, twist, oil rim of glass, garnish.

This name comes from the ingredients, melon is obviously from Midori, while aza- comes from azafrán the Spanish word for saffron.
