What would you make? Cocktail with cantaloupe puree.

I got two gorgeous canteloupes in my CSA this week, that started to go bad because I wasn't using them right away. I decide to just puree them and strain so I could use over the course of the week for agua fresca and drinks. Tomorrow we're hosting a labor day BBQ so I was thinking of making an alcohol cocktail using the puree. I can't decide between a vodka drink and a tequila drink (or something else?). Any thoughts as to which would be better with canteloupe? I've seen a lot of canteloupe margarita recipes but also was thinking that water + vodka would make a delicious alcoholic agua fresca. Any input appreciated!
