Happy Hour: Midori Sour


Midori is a green melon flavored liquor that is used as an ingredient to enhance cocktails. Alternatively, midori can shine on its own as it does in the classic Midori Sour. A sorority girl's easy to drink cocktail, the Midori Sour is a refreshing summer drink. I usually can't drink more than one, but if you are in need of a quick cocktail while you're sitting in the sun, this is a great choice. Oh and the color makes for an electrifying, fun addition for a tropical or rave themed party. Get the recipe,

This was my favorite drink when I turned 21! I've moved on to other drinks that aren't so sweet and less expensive (Midori isn't exactly a "well drink"), but I will always look back at my "just turned 21" bar days with fondness of the bright green drink! WOW! it does look good... I may have to have one for 'ol times sake next time I go out!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Midori Sours. They are my drink of choice. They are a great conversation starter. Guys in bars always ask me if I am drinking Ecto- Cooler. Anyway in Cancun they had frozen Midori Sours that were so yummy. Please it was nice they would bring them out to the beach for you :)

Mmmmmm midori is my favorite liquor hands down, but I'm not a huge fan of Midori sours -- too sweet! I definitely agree with ddene, the midori margarita is where it's at.
