Melon Bomb

Day 93


Melon Bomb
2.5 shots out of 5


Happy weekend!  Bring on the sporting events!!  Just got home from watching the Giants beat the A's!  Tomorrow it's soccer and baseball games for our oldest, followed by another one of his baseball games on Sunday.  I'm sooo ready for summer........I'm sooo ready to NOT have crazy, busy, insane weekends for a short while.  Don't get me wrong I thoroughly enjoy watching my kids play sports, but after a year and 10 months straight of one sport or another on weekends, I'm really looking forward to  being able to relax with my family on the weekends.

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  Ah, it was OK.  I didn't hate it, but there's no way I'd order it on purpose and pay $9 for it at a bar.  I've had many (given that tonight's day 93, I can say that now) cocktails that have been better then this one.  Actually the more I am sipping it........the more I am starting to make faces with each and every sip.  Not so good.  So.......I guess maybe all Midori cocktails aren't scrumptious.

Here is the recipe for a Melon Bomb:

  • 1/2 shot Midori
  • 1/2 shot dark rum
  • 1 1/2 shots orange juice
In a shaker add ice, midori, rum and orange juice.  Shake it up real well.  Strain into a champage glass.

So the color of this cocktail makes me NOT want to try it EVER.  It's such an odd color of green for a cocktail.........it.........kinda scares me.

Cheers!!
