On the contrary, it’s reminiscent of the changed Grinch with the sweetest flavors; melon-flavored Midori and lemon juice. It’s all sweetened even further with a little simple syrup. Add a maraschino cherry for the garnish for color and to represent the changed heart of the green man. Prep Time: 2 minutes Total Time: 2 minutes Yield: 1 Drink Ingredients: 2 oz Midori 1/2 oz lemon juice 1 tsp simple syrup maraschino cherry for garnish Preparation: Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well.
