So, where’e the melon? In the name only. There’s no Midori Melon Liqueur. The idea was to create a melon-like flavor using the maraschino and lemon. The cherry garnish seems an odd note. Maybe the question is not about the lack of melon, but why is there a cherry in my drink?
2 ounces dry gin
1/4 teaspoon maraschino liqueur
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir evenly for 20 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail or martini glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Tasting notes: Drink it ice cold, when the flavors blend best – sharp and bracing!
