Inspired by the fanciest of New York City restaurants, we thought we'd give the whole "5 Course Dining Experience At Home" a try. Hence, the palate cleanser. This beauty clears the tastebuds between the appetizer and entree to give full enjoyment of each course and prevent the flavors from overlapping. We were quite pleased with the outcome. Especially because this recipe is relatively easy and cheap. If you're trying to impress, we recommend giving this one a go! Enjoy.
Soak the mint and Lillet in a mason jar or other air-tight container for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator. This helps the Lillet absorb the mint oils.
Strain the liquid into a food processor or blender along with your frozen melon. Be sure to use a find strainer so that the mint leaves are not added to the blender/ food processor.
Blend the melon, Lillet and mint concentrate for 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately between meals as a palate cleanser. Or after a meal as a dessert.
