When I turned 21, my very 1st legal cocktail was a Midori Sour. I have been a fangirl ever since. Maybe it’s nostalgia, maybe it’s simply because a good Midori Sour is just so yummy. I can’t say. But, I can guarantee once you taste it, you’ll know what I’m talking about! This recipe is for people age 21+.
Since Midori is a melon flavored liquor, it goes great with lemon and lime flavored pop. Which, is what they used to mix up my 1st one. When I moved here to Vegas, I was introduced to the awesome sauce Limoncello. That bartender and I were fast friends! I swapped out the pop for Limoncello on a whim and it was so on! Come see!
You’ll quickly add this drink to your list of cocktails to impress your friends.
