Cantaloupe Colada is a refreshing twist on the classic Piña Colada.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the original and I am a big pineapple fan; but when cantaloupe is in season and deliciously sweet, it makes a nice addition with the coconut, lime juice and rum.
Is It Really A Cantaloupe?
So it turns out, that the cantaloupes that we usually see in America, are actually called muskmelons. The true canataloupe is named for a castle in Italy, but they are not exported. How about that?!
How to Choose Cantaloupe (Muskmelon)
You want to choose one that feels heavy for its size, is sweet and fragrant and yields slighty to pressure on the blossom end. Store the muskmelon at room temperature, but you can store it in the fridge if it’s too ripe.
