20 ml Melon Liqueur, 20 ml Irish Cream Liqueur
Pour the melon liqueur into a shot glass. Slowly float the Irish cream liqueur on top.
This is a great looking shooter with a very interesting and rewarding taste combination. The Irish Frog is the perfect shooter to help celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day due to the green and cream colour of the drink. Unlike many shooters, this drink could easily be sipped instead of gulped back in one motion. When you are preparing this drink it is important that both drinks are very well chilled and that the Irish cream is poured over the melon liqueur slowly, to create a layered effect.
Although there are a few melon liqueurs on the market, we think that Midori liqueur is the perfect spirit for this shooter. Midori liqueur is a muskmelon flavoured liqueur which originated in New York in 1978 and then went on to be produced in Japan. The drink is very sweet and hence pairs well with other fruit juices in the creation of a range of mixed drinks, such as the Japanese Slipper. Midori is well known for its bright green colour and its clever marketing campaigns.
There are also a range of Irish cream liqueurs you could opt for when making the Irish Frog, such as Carolans and St Brendans, but we recommend sticking to the popular Baileys Irish Cream, which is a delicious melody of cream and Irish whiskey and is now one of the most popular liqueurs in the world.
