What is Midori again?

Midori is a Japanese melon-flavored liqueur that was first introduced in 1978. The word “midori” means “green” in Japanese, and the liqueur is indeed a bright green color. It is made with honeydew melon, Muscat of Alexandria grapes, and sugar, and has an alcohol content of 20%.

Midori is often used in cocktails, such as the Midori Sour and the Midori Melon Ball. It can also be added to champagne or sparkling wine to create a festive drink known as aMidori mimosa. In Japan, Midori is sometimes consumed straight or on the rocks. However you choose to enjoy it, Midori is a refreshing and unique liqueur that is perfect for any occasion.

What You Need to Make Midori Illusion

  • 2 ounces Midori
  • ½ ounce vodka
  • ½ ounce triple sec
  • 1½ ounces pineapple juice
  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • Ice
  • Pineapple slice and Maraschino cherries (optional garnish)

How to Make the Recipe

In a cocktail shaker, add the Midori, vodka, triple sec, pineapple juice, and lemon juice.

Add the ice and shake.

Strain into a Collins glass filled with crushed ice.

Garnish with pineapple and cherries.

What is a Collins glass?

A Collins glass is a tall, narrow glass that is ideal for serving mixed drinks. It typically holds between 10 and 14 ounces of liquid, which is the perfect amount for most cocktails. The tall, slim shape of the glass helps to keep the drink colder for longer, and it also allows room for plenty of ice. Additionally, the long stem helps to prevent your hand from warming the drink as you hold it.

Collins glasses are also sometimes called highball glasses, and they are often used for mixed drinks such as gin and tonics, Moscow mules, and Tom Collinses (hence the name). Whether you’re a bartender or a home cocktail enthusiast, owning a set of Collins glasses is a must.

Recipe Tips

You can use a standard Triple Sec for the recipe or try something like Cointreau which is a variation with a little fuller orange flavour. You could even test something like Grand Marnier. Some recipes use Blue Curacao which has a similar flavour but dramatically changed the colour of the drink due to the blue colouring in it.
