The Broken Down Golf Cart is a shooter cocktail that’s very light on the alcohol. Even with the lime juice cutting the sweetness of the Midori and amaretto, this is still a pretty sweet drink. The first thing I taste is the melon from the Midori, which is quickly followed by both sharp notes from the lime and the subtle nutty flavors from the amaretto.
This drink works well as an aperitif or as a tiny little sweet something at the end of a meal. It’s also a nice choice when you want to enjoy some shots that actually taste good and won’t lay you out on the floor immediately.
- 1/2 ounce amaretto
- 1/2 ounce Midori
- Dash of lime juice
Put a handful of ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and pour in all ingredients. Shake thoroughly and strain into a shot glass.
