Quiet day. Since we are in the middle of the two big holidays of the Season, a cocktail called the Grinch seems appropriate.
The Wednesday cocktail is the Grinch.
- 2 oz Midori liqueur
- 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. simple syrup
- Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish this pretty green drink with a maraschino cherry.

I wasn’t too sure about this one before I tried it. As it turns out, yum! Don’t overdo the sugar, the Midori is sweet enough. I made the simple syrup in a mug in the microwave: equal amount of sugar to water. It worked fine, which is good news for when a recipe calls for simple syrup and you don’t have any pre-made.
