The Midori Sour originated in the 1970’s and like many recipes there are different variations. Some call for sour mix but I’m not a huge fan of those, opting instead for fresh lemon to add the famous zing. For those who don’t know, Midori is a honeydew melon flavored liqueur. If you are not a honeydew fan I would suggest you skip this drink. However if you are a melon fan this could be an introduction to an instant favorite! This drink tends to be on the sweeter side but can be adjusted to taste of course. I recommend you experiment with the sugar ratio as the Midori brings its own sweetness to the cocktail already.
