Japanese Slipper

August 31, 2010 (Day 213) — Japanese Slipper

I bought a small bottle of Midori not too long ago that has decided to simply just hang out in my bar and not do anything constructive. It’s a freaking slacker. Jenn keeps telling me it’s up to me to put it to use. I’m not sure I’m buying. I think it’s really just lazy.

So, taking Jenn’s advice I decided to put that green sloth to work.

Japanese Slipper

1.5 oz Midori

1.5 oz orange liqueur (Grand Monarch)

1.5 fresh lime juice

Place your Midori, liqueur and lime juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

It’s a very pretty bright green color. Want to know what a green skittle in liquid form tastes like? It’s the Japanese Slipper. You have a very sweet, candy like flavor at the front, with a sudden sour kick on the end. It’s a great, summery sweet drink. It isn’t weighed down with heavy flavors like chocolate or vanilla, but it’s not bitter or harsh.

I likes it!
