The Mellito

April, 2024

As we look forward to spring, why not try a refreshing take on a mojito using Midori? This melon-flavoured liqueur tastes just as good as it looks!


  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 15 mint leaves
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 1/2 oz. Midori
  • 1 1/2 oz. white rum
  • 2 oz. soda water


Mint Simple Syrup:

In a medium sauce pan, bring the sugar, water and 10 mint leaves to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for one minute, remove from heat and let the mixture steep for 30 minutes.

For the Drink:

In a tall jar, middle five mint leaves with 1 oz. of simple syrup and the lime juice. Add five ice cubes and stir. Mix in the Midori, the white run and the soda water. Stir to combine.

Serve with mint leaves and a wedge of lime.

Fun twist: Instead of white rum try coconut rum!
