Bourbon and melon combine in this simple drink for a delightful, light flavor. Refreshing enough to enjoy on hot summer days, yet complex enough to enjoy year round, the Melon Splash is a drink you may not expect to taste good but it is fabulous. I have yet to try it with a bourbon other than Woodford Reserve so I can only attest to the drink made with that, although some of the "tougher" bourbons are likely to overwhelm the sweet delicacy of the Midori.
