What Is Midori

Midori is a sweet Japanese liqueur with a melon flavor that is perfect for creating delicious and colorful cocktails. When it comes to making a green cocktail, Midori is an obvious choice, as its green color adds vibrancy and fun to any drink.

Drinks with Midori

Midori is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of cocktails. Try mixing it with lemonade for a sweet and tangy summer drink, or combine it with vodka and cranberry juice for a refreshing Cosmopolitan with a twist.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try creating your own signature cocktail using Midori as a base. Mix it with your favorite fruit juices, sodas, or liqueurs, and experiment with different garnishes and presentation styles for a truly unique and colorful drink.

Whether you’re making a Grinch Cocktail for Christmas or enjoying a refreshing Midori Sour on a summer day, drinks with Midori are always a fun and flavorful choice.

Tips

I recommend serving these immediately since the soda will go flat if made in advance or left to sit for too long.

Do not stir long or hard as it will flatten the soda. It only takes a quick swish of the spoon to get it mixed well.

I do not recommend mixing these in a cocktail shaker before serving since it will cause the soda to go flat. Ew, it’s not a tasty outcome. 

You’re more than welcome to use any clear soda that’s similar to 7UP. Whatever you have on hand or the brand you prefer is just fine.

Want a stronger cocktail? Remove an ounce of the 7UP and replace it with another ounce of either the vodka or Midori, whichever you prefer.

If you would like a chilled cocktail, but no ice, simply have the ingredients chilled before making the drink. 

In case you can’t find Midori, other green melon liqueur should do the trick.
