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,
