Want to make a bigger batch? Doubling the melon should yield enough juice to make 6 drinks. Process and strain in 2 batches, and then mix up 3 times the rest of the ingredients in a pitcher.
Serves 2 (serving size: about 2/3 cup)
1. Combine cantaloupe and lime juice in a food processor; process until pureed. Strain mixture through a fine sieve over a bowl, stirring. Discard solids. Measure 6 ounces cantaloupe juice (reserve any extra juice for another use).
2. Place cantaloupe juice, tequila, Grand Marnier, and agave in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously; strain into 2 ice-filled glasses. Clap each mint sprig between palms; garnish each drink with 1 sprig.
