One important thing I learned on the farm is how to identify which melons are ripe. While the color is usually a good indicator, the best way to figure out if the fruit is ready to go is to actually smell it - if it has that sweet melon aroma, it's good to go.
You can buy melon juice from your farmers market or juice your own cantaloupe right before you make the cocktail. I obviously recommend the ladder, as it will be much fresher. And if you don't have a juicer, you can slice melon into 1-inch cubes and muddle it before adding the rest of the ingredients in the shaker. About 4-5 cubes should be enough for one cocktail.
