Adore Midori; My first favourite drink

It's a little early to go walking around Adelaide & so I'm still holed up in my hotel room with nothing much to do except for typing... so here's my story for the morning.

Very much like my mother, one of my first favourite drinks is MidoriIt's a very pretty bright, green coloured, muskmelon flavored liqueur made by Suntory. It is manufactured in Mexico, though it was originally made in Japan until 1987. 

There is a whole flavour range under the same brand but the gorgeous green stuff is simply the best.

I am, in fact, drinking a bit of it now mixed with lemon soda & orange juice.. nothing better on a Sunday morning!

Here are a few of my other favourite recipe's complete with pictures Midori World. Yes, Midori World.

Not only is Midori amazing in any of the above form, it's also beautiful with just one mixing partner such as Cranberry Juice, Lemon Juice, Apple Juice (any juice really), Tonic Water, Champagne or over ice. 

Time for another!
