Midori Splice

Day 118

Midori Splice
4.5 shots out of 5

"You are the proud owner of a VERY bruised foot!  Congratulations, it's not broken!"  Those were the happiest words I heard today!  When you have 4 kids, you really don't have time for a broken anything!  Last summer I broke my elbow.......that was horrible, because it was in the middle of summer and I had all 4 kids home with me everyday.  My oldest stepped up and took care of the 2 girls for me as I only could use 1 hand for  quite a while.  That boy amazes me with how much he helps out and thoroughly enjoys his siblings.  Needless to say, I'm ecstatic that my foot is not broken!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  I got this cocktail, once again, from the Midori website.  Their recipe called for cream to be floated on top, but I figured that whipped cream would be more fun to put on top, so I went with it instead.  This cocktail reminds me of the Ninja Turtle cocktail I made a while back.  The difference between the two is the amount of pineapple juice and the cream/whipped cream on top (and now looking back at the Ninja Turtle I just realized that I rated it the same as tonight's cocktail).  So I'm going to go out on a limb and say, "If you liked the Ninja Turtle, you'll like the Midori Splice".

Here is the recipe for the Midori Splice:

  • 1 oz Midori
  • 1 oz coconut rum
  • 3 oz pineapple juice
  • whipped cream

In a champagne glass, or any medium sized glass, fill it 1/2 way full with crushed ice.  Add your Midori, rum and pineapple juice and stir them up well.  Top it off with whipped cream and enjoy!
