As the summer continues to heat up, we have selected 3 fantastic Cocktails with Midori Liqueur to help you cool down. Midori Liqueur is a sweet, melon flavoured liqueur which is made primarily in France and Japan. The word Midori means “green” in Japanese and due to the intense sweetness of the drink it is most often served as an ingredient in cocktails such as the Japanese Slipper or the Midori Sour, in which sour flavours are used to counteract the sweetness. Cocktails with Midori often feature fruit juices such as pineapple and orange juice which lend to a tropical tasting flavoured drink, which is often popular at holiday resorts.

Midori Liqueur was first launched in 1978 at the infamous Studio 54 nightclub and since then it has employed several celebrities to be ambassador to the brand, most recently Kim Kardashian.

The following are 3 cocktails with Midori Liqueur which are definitely worth a try this summer to sample this unique and tasty liqueur.
