Midori Sour Cocktail Recipe

The sweetness of Midori, a muskmelon flavored Japanese liqueur, helps make an excellent sweet and sour alcoholic drink when combined with sour mix and lime juice. The lemon lime soda and non-traditional garnish used in this midori sour recipe makes drink even zingier and adds character to its tempting green color.
