Are you looking for some nice cocktail recipes with Midori? Midori was launched in 1978 by the Japanese company called Suntory. Midori means green in Japanese and it is a well-kown cocktail ingredient. It is a clear green liqueur which is sold in its characteristic bottle. The main aroma comes from the melon which is not a common taste in the world of liqueurs and cocktails. The green color is artificially added and is the trademark of the drink. Some say the color refers to the color of some melon types such as the cantaloupe or the galla although only the pulp is used for the production of Midori. Fact is that the taste is rather linked to the banana. It is sweet and thick as syrup and it has an alcohol percentage of 20% . Midori is most of the times served mixed instead of pure.
