St. Patty’s Day Green Cocktail: Melon Whiskey Sour

Can you believe it is March already?  I have to say it snuck up on me.  I love March.  It means that Spring weather is coming, the days will be longer, and it is the month that I became a mom, so it is extra special to me.  Of course we can’t forget St. Patrick’s day!

I used to be one for a nice cold green beer, but these days I find myself leaning more toward a fun cocktail. So the hubs and I got to mixing the other day and came up with this fun green cocktail for St. Patty’s Day.  We pretty much took a Midori Sour to a whole new level here.  After a long debate about what to call it we settled on a very simple name. So here is the Melon Whiskey Sour.

In my mind a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail has to be green and include whiskey.  This white whiskey is perfect because it doesn’t mess with the really fun green color of the Midori.

How to make a Melon Whiskey Sour

(serves 2)

  • 1 part White Wiskey
  • 2 parts Melon Midori
  • 2 parts sweet and sour mix
  • (optional) 1 part ginger ale- this will make it a little less strong
  • about 6 frozen honeydew melon balls (made with a melon baller)

Before it was cocktail time, I used a melon baller to create melon balls.  I put them in the freezer for about an hour so that they would make a fun garnish and act as ice cubes for my green cocktails.

Before pouring, I put one big square ice cube at the bottom of my glass, followed by 3 frozen melon balls, then poured away!st. patty's day drink, st. patrick's day cocktail, green drink, green cocktail, whisky sour recipe, cocktail made with whiskey, melon midori, midori sour
