Drink Horror Stories - Midori

So we had friends over last night and they bring us a bottle of Midori melon liquor. I have never seen it before and I am always one to take up a mixing challenge, so I bring it to the kitchen and try and mix this with something. I wanted to mix it with vodka and OJ but I didn't have any vodka (my bad ).

I can't remember exactly what I put in it, but it turned into this creamy light green drink that was super sweet. I won't be making it again, but it wasn't bad so we drank it.

I think I put this:

Vanilla Ice Cream
A splash of pina colada liquid mix
2 bananas

Yeah, don't make that. It needed OJ because it was so sweet, but with the ice cream I couldn't put any in. Ewww.

Does anyone else have any drink horror stories?

Yeah, but it usually involves cheap liquor and waking up naked somewhere.

I'm old enough to remember when Midori first hit the shelves & cocktails were being invented all over the place to promote it.

Frankly, the only way I've ever enjoyably used it is as a splash over a mixed melon fruit salad.

Midori is so sweet you really need to mix it with something not sweet.

It works OK with ginger ale, sweet and sour mix, etc. Not one of my favorites

One of my favorite drinks. One shot Midori, one shot sweet and sour, one shot OJ, one tablespoon cherry juice, one cherry.
I have done other variations like adding pineapple juice or mango mix as well. You just have to make sure that you are adding in equal parts sour to any parts sweet, minimum.

That doesn't sound too bad Maverick. I might try that next time.

Another drink with Midori is similar to a Pina-Colada, one of my favourites as I absolutely LOVE Malibu. Its one part Midori,one part Malibu and top up with Pineapple juice, or as Maverick said, you can use Mango juice, its Delish!!!. Make it all over crushed ice. Im not sure whats in a Pina-Colada, but I think this is close, I have also used Blue Curacao, instead of the Midori, but I think Midori works better, WACCY Colour combo's though.

I have banana malibu rum and passion fruit malibu rum. I bet they both would taste awesome with some pineapple/ mango juice. I also have pear juice, I wonder how that would taste.

I agree with you there, the color just keeps getting stranger the more you mix into the Midori lol
