About Midori Edit
A Japanese liqueur that has the flavor of honeydew melon. Midori is a bright green-coloured melon-flavoured liqueur made by Suntory. It is manufactured in Mexico.
Midori is used as in ingredient in cocktails; for example, a Midori Illusion. Midori is usually mixed with lemonade, fresh lemon juice, lime juice, or orange juice. Midori is 21% alcohol by volume, but as it is a mixer, the actual amount used in a single drink is usually one shot (33 mL). If a higher alcohol content is desired in the beverage, Malibu may also be used in the drink. Midori is extremely sweet, so adding a tangy fruit juice modifies a drink's flavor to offset the sugary taste.
The name comes from midori, the Japanese word for "green".
