Cantaloupe Campari Cubes

As a kid my mom would always keep a bowl of sliced cantaloupe in the fridge for my little sister and I to snack on. It’s a fruit that I’ve always associated with hot summer days and my best childhood memories. I recently stumbled upon a recipe for Cantaloupe Campari Popsicles on Food Republic, which I wanted to somehow incorporate into my adult summertime favorite, Aviation and Soda.┬áIt’s such a great, simple drink that easily be spiced up a little, or cantaloupe iced up in this case. Rather than using popsicle molds as the recipe suggested I decided to instead pour the cantaloupe mixture into ice trays. After patiently waiting for the mixture to freeze I poured a few Aviation and Sodas, cantaloupe cube included. The results were amazing!
