Obviously this drink was inspired by the classic cocktail The Melon Ball and the classic 1986 Rodney Dangerfield movie Back to School.



  1. This drink can be served straight up or on the rocks.
  2. If making straight up: To a cocktail shaker, add ice, vodka, melon liqueur, and a splash orange juice; shake vigorously to combine. Strain into a large, chilled martini glass and garnish with melon balls.
  3. If making drink on the rocks: Fill rocks glass with ice. Add vodka, melon liqueur and enough orange juice to fill glass. Stir with either a stirrer or straw. Garnish with melon balls.
