Bubbly and luscious, you’ll be smitten with the Midori Sour. This pinkish sour mix is bright green and absolute perfection in a glass, combining melony notes with mellow fruitiness. Rumor has it that the creation of this drink was inspired by a California sushi restaurant chain’s quest to devise a cocktail as popular as their house sake blend. 

The result? A fabulously unique drink with an unmistakable taste, aroma and color that will easily have you asking for a second round. Midori Sour cocktail is a bright, fluorescent green drink that will make you feel like a mermaid in the ocean! It pops with acidity and zingy melon flavor.
