You will find a fabulous green drink in this Melon Ball Drop that features Midori melon liqueur. That lovely liqueur is paired with a citrus vodka and an elderflower liqueur, which St. Germain is a great and possibly the only option for most people. So the Melon Ball Drop has a lot of fruitiness and a little herbalness offset by a sweet sugar rim and a melon garnish, all of which combine for a very interesting martini-style drink.
