If you're looking for a short drink, light on the alcohol and high on the fruity flavor the Japanese Slipper is one you'll want to give a try. It's very simple, equal parts Midori, Cointreau and lemon juice shaken, but it's the combination of those three fruity elixirs that makes this cocktail great. This is an excellent drink for spring, summer, beach parties or anytime you want a short, neat fruity drink without the heavy buzz.
