here's how you do it

1. Use a melon baller to scoop out the flesh of each melon and put the balls into a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.

2. Warm the Agave nectar in microwave for about 30 seconds, just until thinned a little.

3. Mix fresh ginger and Cointreau into the Agave and stir to combine. Pour over the melon balls and mix so all the melon is covered in syrup. Chill for at least an hour.

4. To serve, skewer one of each type of melon ball onto a cocktail skewer, place in a shot glass and drizzle with a little syrup. Garnish with a tiny sprig of mint.

party tip:

Make these the day before and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

For larger parties, make it easy on yourself and skip the shot glasses for serving. Just line the skewers up on a platter and drizzle with syrup.
