Midori Sour

The Midori Sour is based loosely on the classic Whiskey Sour. It features Midori blended with whiskey, lemon juice and Sprite. The melon flavor hits your taste buds first, with lemon following closely behind.

Midori Sour drink with cherry

Remember not to waste good single malt whiskey on a cocktail – Jack Daniels or Maker’s Mark do just fine for this one. This is a great drink for a night out – just the right blend of sweet and sour, with just a moderately strong kick.


  • 1 ounce Midori
  • 1 ounce whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 ounces Sprite

Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour in all the ingredients, and stir briefly. Toss in the cherries for garnish, and serve
