Introduction: Grinch Cocktail

This Grinch-colored cocktail is made with midori, a melon liqueur. It's sour and sweet and really refreshing to drink. :)

I almost wanted to call this this Fallout cocktail because it looks so radioactive, but I guess that's not very festive!

Step 1: Ingredients:

  • 2 oz midori
  • 1/2 oz lemon, lime or pineapple juice
  • 1/4 oz  simple syrup
What you choose to use will make the drink more transparent or opaque. Lemon and pineapple juice will make it a little more cloudy - but I went with sweetened lime juice which kept it more clear. :D

I think it looks great in martini glasses, but you can double the recipe to serve it in a deeper or wider glass!

Step 2: Mix the Drink

Put a couple handfuls of ice into a shaker and pour over the midori, juice of choice and simple syrup.

Shake well and pour into a glass.

Step 3: Enjoy!

I'm not one for garnishes, but I think this would look pretty great rimmed with colored sugar or maybe with some maraschino cherries. :D

    To Jessyratfink, yeah drunk driving is something to laugh about and post online. You're what is killing or society.

    I walk and ride the bus, but thanks for letting me know what a terrible person I am. ;)

    I don't "do" cocktails, because the experimentalist in me would quickly render me unconscious...

    :-D

    Ha! I had to pace myself yesterday when making all of these, but I did leave the office feeling pretty tipsy. At least the commute home was nicer than normal. :D
