Midori has been around since the mid 1970s, but the range of cocktails which includes this melon-flavoured liqueur is relatively narrow. Its innate sweetness is usually cut with a citrus juice, as with the orange-juice drenched Melon Ball. The Midori Sour sticks to the orange theme by adding Cointreau, as do the Japanese Slipper and the Midori Illusion.

The Midori Splice goes out on a limb with a mix of coconut rum and pineapple juice, but you’ve got to have a pretty sweet tooth to enjoy that creamy tropical cocktail. What we like about the Melon Apple Fizz is that it blends the melon flavour with the sharp taste of apples in a drink that isn’t rum-based. For Midori, that truly is something different.

There are basically two different kinds of Tequila – 100% Agave and Mixto. To be honest, the Mixto can be pretty horrible, with as low as 51% agave and the addition of grain alcohol and additives. Stick with Reposado (aged up to a year) or Joven (Gold) that is a combination of Reposado and unaged Silver tequila. You don’t need to go upmarket if you’re using your Tequila in a cocktail, but you should at least use the real thing which means 100% alcohol distilled from blue agave.

Here’s the recipe for a Melon Apple Fizz:

  • 30ml Tequila

  7. Garnish with a fan of apple slices
