First, How about a completely refreshing and lovely to look at libation?
These Strawberry-Honeydew Coolers couldn’t be easier to make and explode with the fresh flavors of summer. Just the thing to give you a hint of some balmy weather as winter lingers on.
Unlike most of the drinks I tend to blend up, these are alcohol free, so the kiddies can join in on the frosty fun.
3 cups diced honeydew melon, frozen
1-½ cups water, divided
4 Tbs sugar, divided
¼ cup fresh basil leaves
3 cups hulled, halved fresh strawberries, frozen
1. Puree honeydew, 3/4 cup water, 2 Tbsp sugar (or to taste) and basil in a food processor or blender until smooth. Remove puree from processor; set aside.
2. Purée strawberries, remaining 3/4 cup water, and remaining 2 Tbs sugar (or to taste) in a food processor or blender until smooth.
3. Scoop purée into 4 tall narrow glasses; top with honeydew purée and continue layering to top of glasses. Serve coolers immediately.

Frightened Rabbit has a new album, Pedestrian Verse, out this month. I got my copy yesterday and it is Brill. Brill. Brilliant.
Of course, I love Frightened Rabbit so much that I may be a bit biased, but I don’t really think so. The lyrics are still ace, the music bursts out at you with plenty of texture. Then, of course, there is Scott Hutchison’s distinctive and, oh so gorgeous, voice.
Check out Frightened Rabbit on the band’s Website, where you can learn of upcoming World Tour dates (get your tickets now, the shows are selling out fast) and buy their music.
