Cocktails with Midori
These are the best classic Midori cocktails that are perfect for any season and many different events. Several of the cocktails use Sour Mix, which I highly recommend making on your own.
Midori has a sweet and fruity flavor reminiscent of ripe honeydew melons.
Midori is a liqueur, and it typically has a lower alcohol by volume (ABV) compared to spirits like vodka or whiskey. It typically has an ABV of around 20-21%. This bright green liqueur is known for its sweet and fruity honeydew melon flavor, making it a popular ingredient in cocktails and mixed drinks.
Midori is generally not consumed straight or neat due to its sweet and intense honeydew melon flavor. It’s primarily used as a cocktail mixer to add a fruity and vibrant element to various drinks. Drinking it straight may be overly sweet and may not provide the balanced and enjoyable experience that comes from using it in cocktails.
