Midori June Bug

Day 117

Midori June Bug
3 shots out of 5

I have an appt. with an orthopedic tomorrow to see if my foot is broken.......please send "non-broken foot" vibes my way!!  I really don't want a broken foot.......so we'll see what happens.  On another note, I got tonight's cocktail from the Midori website.  I saw a few others on there that sounded interesting, so I'll be giving them a try in the future for sure.

I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5.  This was a pretty good cocktail.  Not a whole lot of "wow" flavor for me, but good none the less.  I think if I was to make this cocktail again, I'd cut back on the lemon juice a bit and add more coconut rum and/or banana liqueur to give it more flavor.  Putting my amendments to the cocktail aside, I really am enjoying it and will definitely finish the whole thing!

Here is the recipe for a Midori June Bug:

  • 1 oz Midori
  • 1/2 oz coconut rum
  • 1/2 oz banana liqueur
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz lemon juice
In a shaker, add ice, Midori, rum, banana liqueur, pineapple and lemon juices.  Shake up your mixture really well and strain it into a tall cocktail glass filled with crushed ice.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to a few more Midori cocktail in the future!
