I Spy Something Green

Summer, doncha just love it?!

After spending a lovely day at the pool, with a delicious barbecue dinner (steak and Yaya's fabulosity of a potato salad)...it was time for dessert.

And by dessert I mean getting my drink on!

Melon liqueur to be exact, Midori.

So popping out the blender we decide on Midori Sours, um yum, yum.

Think green Jolly Rancher in a glass.

Ice, Midori, and Sweet and Sour, 'tis all.

Forgive the stanky pics, the lighting in the kitchen is horrid.

Give it a little blend.
Well, a lot of blend unless you like huge ice chunks in your drink.

Sans ice, it's a simple 2 parts Midori, 1 part Sweet and Sour.

Oh the deliciousness.

Cheers!

    What a COINCIDENCE: we both blogged green today! (Only yours definitely looks as if it tastes better. YUM!)

  16. Terri said...

    wow these sound great; never tried one. If I drink at all it's got to be sweet and tasty, not really resembling alcohol, so this might fit the bill. Also, must it be accompanied by frito lay? :o)

  17. Michelle said...

    Yummy! I have never made my own midori sours but now I may just have to try.

    The hubs and I enjoyed some nice cold beer last night. There is something about summer that makes a cold beer or mixed drink especially tasty.

    The only time of the year I get to drink is on my wedding anniversary. I hope I can remember this for when Dec. 18 comes around.

  20. Keyona said...

  21. Patrice said...

    This is my fave drink! I will sometimes rotate these with Amaretto Sours. Also very yummy!

  23. MamaJoss said...

  24. Rachel said...

    OMG -- that looks soooooo freakin' good. Sigh -- I miss alcohol.

  25. Tasha said...

    Those are good but can I say....lightweight! (giggle)

    And Kudos to your DH for drinking them, too!

    Hymmm...now I'm thinking I need to add Midori to my drink list...
