Midori Sour Cocktail Recipe


Some cocktails are known for their delicious taste, while others are better known for their distinctive appearance. The Midori Sour cocktail combines the best of both worlds — a sweet, fruity taste and a fun green color that can add a festive touch to any party. Best of all, you don’t need to be a mixology expert.  Midori debuted in 1978 at Studio 54, the notorious New York nightclub, which was a fitting venue for the bright and showy liqueur that stands out among all other bottles on a back bar.
