I recommend preparing this cocktail ahead of time. It's better to refrigerate it for a couple of hours (or overnight) so that the spritzer gets more infused with the flavor.

You can use either honeydew melon or cantaloupe
1/2honeydew or cantaloupe
1cupfresh spearmint leaves
750mlbottle of sweeter wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Rieslingnot moscato
Spearmint leaves to garnish
Cut melon in half. Set aside one half for cocktail recipe and the other you can use for party appetizers. Scoop out the seeds and take off the skin. Chop the melon into about 1/2 inch chunks. Add half into a bowl and half into the pitches.
Add simple syrup and mint leaves to the bowl with chopped melon. Mash together mint, melon, and simple syrup. Try to press more on the mint to extract the juices. Add the entire content of the bowl to the pitcher.
Add wine to the pitcher and mix well.
I would recommend refrigerating for a couple of hours (or overnight) at this point, so that the spritzer gets more infused with the flavor.
Add club soda before serving and gently stir.
