The Midori Martini
Greetings Divas and Gents! And welcome to another edition of Martini Thursday! Today's martini recipe is just in time for St. Patrick's Day this weekend. The Midori Martini comes courtesy of Midori Liqueur website. This recipe combines the smoothness of a Classic Martini with the sweet taste of melons. This, and its appropriate green color, is perfect for the Professional Diva or Gent looking for a great alternative to beer during St. Patrick's Day festivities. Just ask the bartender to make a Midori Martini...if he has no clue how to make it, teach him! The recipe, of course, is below and easy to follow. Enjoy!
