One thing that I enjoy about Midori is that they come up with some of the most creative cocktails you will find. This Melon Eye-Tini is no exception and requires you to not only muddle the main ingredients, top it off with a green tea ginger ale (Yummy!), and have fun spanking some basil leaves (releases a bit of tension) and positioning the grape garnish to look like eyes floating in your drink. It all comes down to creating a fun, flavorful, interesting, and somewhat creepy drink that is ideal for your Halloween entertaining needs.

YUCK! WAY TOO SWEET, Member BettyApron

Sorry, this recipe is gross. Agave Syrup, AND Sweet and Sour? AND Strawberry Sundae Syrup ? Sorry,,that strawberry syrup gets into the drink. This is gross. Bad balancing of drink. What happened to the gal from last year that made all the Midori Halloween drinks? Those were great! I make all of your recipes that you submit , but this is bad.
