- 1 Honeydew Melon
- 1½ cups 1 1/2 Cups of Sweet & Sour Mix
- 6 oz Midori® Melon Liqueur
- 2 oz Iowa Legendary Rye Vodka
- 2 env Knox Gelatin (unflavored gelatin)
Prepare the Honeydew Melon
Cut the honeydew melon lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh of the melon leaving about ½ inch (about ⅛ inch) of flesh in the melon. Place the honeydew melon in a bowl.
Note: Place a towel between the melon and the bowl to keep the melon upright and secure.
Make Midori Sour Gelatin
Pour Midori and vodka into a bowl or container. Sprinkle the gelatin over the liquors. Let it stand for about one minute.
Boil 1 ½ cups of sweet and sour mix and pour it into the gelatin mixture. Stir well until the gelatin dissolves completely.
Refrigerate the Midori Sour Jello
Fill the melon all the way to the rim with the midori sour gelatin mixture and place it in the refrigerator. Refrigerate overnight or until firm.
Slice the Honeydew Melon
Once the gelatin is firm, cut the ends of the honeydew melon with a warm sharp knife. Then, slice the melon in half from one end to the other.
Note: Run the knife under hot water and dry it. A warm knife makes it easier to slice the gelatin.
Make Midori Sour Jello Wedges
Using a warm sharp knife, slice the two honeydew melon pieces into wedges. Place the midori sour jello wedges on a plate and serve.
