4 of the Most Popular Midori Cocktails

Midori Cocktails & Green Drinks!

Midori is owned and produced by Suntory throughout the world. It was exclusively produced in Japan from 1964 and known as Hermes Melon Liqueur. It wasn’t until later that it was renamed to Midori which translates to “green” in Japanese. It started to gain traction in international markets after it was launched in New York City in 1978. It became a popular ingredient on back bars throughout the world.

The recipe was apparently tweaked around 2013 – reducing the sugar content and having a fresher melon taste, more reminiscent of the premium grade of musk melons that are used to produce the vibrant green liqueur.
