What is Midori?:

Midori is the brand name for a specific liqueur that is distinct in two aspects: color and flavor. The color is a beautiful light green that is often used in cocktails for that exact characteristic.

The Flavor of Midori:

The flavor of Midori is also unique. It is that of a very sweet melon - although I would not peg it to a specific type of melon, but more of a mix. This distinct flavor profile is often used in cocktails to highlight other fruits. Because of its flavor mixing versatility and the desire for its color in cocktails, I would consider Midori an essential for a well-stocked bar.
