Midori is a bright green melon liquor flavored after that of a honeydew melon, although the liquor itself is brighter than the actual melon. Today you can find Midori in over 30 different countries and it tends to be favored by younger drinkers.
In 1981 Midori exceeded 100,000 cases worldwide and eventually production was moved to Mexico and sales continued. In 2001, sales figures exceeded 250,000 for this sweet crazy green liquid and I doubt it’s on any type of decline.
I’m not sure if anyone dares drink Midori by itself, using it as a core mixing ingredient for a Midori Margarita, Midori Sour, Melonball.. You can look for midori to be super sweet, almost like guzzling an Orgeat Syrup, Grenadine or something similar but with an actual alcoholic punch (21% alcohol by volume).
