Can I substitute any ingredients in Melon Heaven if I don't have melon liqueur?

If melon liqueur is unavailable, you can substitute it with a mix of Midori and a splash of honeydew melon syrup or juice to replicate the melon flavor. Adjust the sweetness according to taste, as these substitutes can alter the flavor profile.

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

Is there a non-alcoholic variation of Melon Heaven?
