Are you having a summer cocktail party anytime soon? If so, I have the perfect summer martini for you to serve.....the Melon Martini. It's refreshing and sweet.
A bit of Midori history:
Midori was developed by Suntory, and was launched in the United States in 1978 with a huge welcoming party at Studio 54, attended by the stars of Saturday Night Fever, including John Travolta.
2 oz Midori Melon Liqueur
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz Triple Sec
-Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice.
-Pour the vodka, Midori and triple sec into the shaker.
-Shake and strain the drink into a Martini glass. (I fill my glass 3/4 full and top it off with club soda.....I know, I know, it's watered down that way but I'm a light weight)
-Garnish the glass with a wedge of honeydew melon, a pineapple wedge or I like to use a maraschino cherry because I like the look in a martini glass.
Happy Tuesday! Pin It
