This Halloween cocktail brings together three great liqueurs so you have the sweet melon of Midori, the herbal qualities of either Strega or Chartreuse and the spicy ginger of Canton. As far as the options given for soda, I like the boldness of ginger beer here because it adds an extra snap. However, some don't like that and for those ginger ale is a sufficient alternative - it just depends on individual taste.
