Grown-Up Yum Yums: Midori Sour

A good friend introduced me to Midori. It's a melon liquor with a fruity, highly sweet taste. Once I made my Sour Mix I wanted a fun drink to go with, and I had midori so I started searching for Midori Sours, like you'd do an amaretto sour? I found about a dozen indvidual recipes and I came up with a mix I liked, and several friends agreed. After tweaking, here's what we came up with!

Midori Sour

Note: I used a 1.5 oz shot glass for this, but the ratio will stay the same no matter what size unit you use to measure.


  • 1 1/2 parts Bacardi Gold Rum
  • 1 1/2 parts Midori
  • 2 parts Sour Mix
  • 2 parts ginger ale


  1. Mix over ice in a tall (16oz) glass.
  2. Stir.
  3. Enjoy!

As with any of my recipes, I say make it your own. My original was Bacardi Gold Rum, Midori, and diet ginger ale. I'll be trying it soon with Bacardi 151, and I'll probably take it to 1 part rum & 2 parts Midori since 151 is stronger flavored. I tried it this weekend with the Bacardi Gold and cherry lime-ade - IT TASTED LIKE A JOLLY RANCHER! A friend prefers vodka and is going to try it that way.

So choose your favorite liquer base (rum, vodka, tequila, etc), and the Midori and Sour Mix, and top it off with your favorite sweet mixer (ginger ale, cherry limeade, sprite, orange or pineapple juice, etc) It's your party! The sky's the limit!
