The Devil Wears Nada

Michael Fitzgerald, Crave Armed with a bottle of Grey Goose Le Melon, Crave’s chief mixologist set out to make a “cool cantaloupe drink that has some character to it.” Habañero syrup provides a steady kick to a nectarous trio of tangerine juice, peach liqueur, and the melon-infused vodka, bound with almond milk and emulsified egg whites. Plop two melon balls on top and you’ve got a good approximation of the female form, he says; hence the name “The Devil Wears Nada,” a tropical tipple even Miranda Priestly couldn’t resist.
