  • Using the back of a large spoon, press melon pulp through sieve, draining additional liquid (you should have about 3 1/2 cups liquid). Discard solids.

  • For each drink, fill a cocktail shaker three-fourths full with ice. Add 1/3 cup melon liquid. Cover and shake until the outside of the shaker becomes frosty. Strain into a chilled glass. Slowly pour in 1/3 cup Prosecco; stir gently. If desired, add a melon slice and/or additional basil.
