Besides Zima and Strawberry Hill wine, a Midori Sour was the first cocktail I really enjoyed. I’m sure millions of women will agree with me; when we turn 21 and could order a drink in a bar, Midori Sour was probably the go-to order.
Without looking, I bet bartenders everywhere can guess the age of someone ordering a midori sour within 3 years. Choose 21-25 and you’re probably on the right track.
For this cocktail, I turned that favorite drink and turned it into a party punch recipe. This makes enough for a crowd! I actually came up with this as a copycat for a drink I had last summer in Seattle. The drink was called a Summer Sipper and had all these same flavors: orange, lime, vodka, melon. It was very tasty – and I drank a few – so I made my own when I got home.
The problem was what to call it. Summer Sipper sounds fun and refreshing but for search purposes…no one is going google that. When I did some research on the ingredients, I realized that Summer Sipper was really close to a Midori Sour, but more watered down. Midori Sour Punch it is, folks!
What is a midori sour?
Delicious, that’s what it is.
A midori sour is a sweet cocktail made with melon liqueur, AKA Midori. Midori is the brand name, melon liqueur is what it is. The cocktail combines the sweet and sour flavors of melon, lime, vodka, and sweet and sour.
The midori gives it the signature green color and unmistakable taste of melon. The drink is sweet and sour and the perfect cocktail.
Summer is all about pool parties and gatherings, so a midori sour pitcher recipe was needed. This recipe couldn’t be easier; all you do is stir all the ingredients in a pitcher and serve over ice.
