I LOVE this drink! I had it for the first time in the Bahamas and after that I drank nothing but these the rest of the time. Can't taste too much alcohol, but trust me, it will allow you to have a good time!!

This drink is the best, I don't drink that much but when I do this is what I drink!! I have everyone at my office drinking Midori Sours - they like the color!
One of the best drinks out there!

I can drink this drink like water. I am only a casual drinker, and when a friend recommended this drink, I couldn't stop drinking them. VERY GOOD!

Midori Sours are the BEST!!! No mixed drink can top them!

posted by Christina - Indio, California @ 01:53PM, 8/01/06

I love this drink. It's refreshing, and delicious. My favorite way is with lots of ice, a cherry, wedge of lime, and most important salt on the rim of the glass! Try it.

I LOVE this drink! It tastes so good, u don't even realize there's alcohol in it. Love it!
Midori sour rocks!!!

This is a great drink. I have a hard time getting in the party mood and I hate the taste of alcohol but once my friend introduced me to MR MIDORI SOUR I can enjoy myself all night long!!!!

This was the "real" drink that started off the nite for my 21st birthday. At first it was like wow, then it was really good... I like this, it is a keeper :)
My new fav drink

One night I went to drink with my friends. I had ordered a cadillac margarita and it was horrible. My sister in law had a Midori sour and it was off the hook.

All time fav

posted by j @ 10:48AM, 10/24/06

I have been drinking this drink now for about 10 years, even though midori is not very popular, whenever i recommend it to people they become hooked! My all time favourite.

posted by D @ 02:07AM, 11/03/06

I've had this drink once. I was in Italy (am American). I liked it, and the color is nice, but Italians aren't the greatest at making mixed drinks. The friend that recommended the drink to me suggested I try it in the US. It will probably be much better.

posted by saltliqour @ 05:48PM, 11/08/06

This is a really good drink. Can't taste alcohol and it tastes like yummy melons.

posted by Spanky @ 11:43PM, 11/11/06

Just bought a bottle today and combined it with the sour mix -- it was awesome...try it without the soda, too.
Love it

Very very good

posted by Winston_Smith @ 10:26PM, 12/25/06

I love this drink, taste is so good - I love melon. And you can drink them all night without getting wasted. I prefer to add a bit more Midori to mine around 1 1/2 oz or so.
Pretty sweet, and tasty

Dayum good!!!

Absolutely Perfect

posted by Miss Whitney @ 09:38PM, 4/08/07

I don't like strong alcoholic beverages, so this one is the perfect drink. I like to add a little grenadine so that it tastes like a watermelon/kiwi/berry taste to it. Very good!
Light and green and good

posted by Drou @ 09:49AM, 4/12/07

The alcohol in this isn't so high-- Midori is only 20something% alcohol-- but it's a light easy drink, and disappears quickly. Especially good for beginners.

posted by Mollie @ 02:50PM, 4/14/07

I've never drank before because I don't like to taste alcohol. I've always tasted here and there looking for a drink that I liked and I found it. I love this drink so much, highly recomended!
Very Good

posted by Channie @ 12:43PM, 5/03/07

I had this drink for the first time back in '04 and I live by this drink!!! It's GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a low tolerance for alcohol and so this drink is great b/c I can't really taste the alcohol in it, and it goes down easy.

So far, this is the only mixed alcoholic drink that I've ever tasted and liked. I had this as my first drink on my 21st birthday. Highly recommend!
Love it

posted by lorimidori @ 10:19PM, 6/02/07

This is a drink I've always loved...and the color. At the time it matched my eyes. You can drink this and still have a good taste in your mouth. You should also try a bit of pineapple juice in it. It's Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!! It also rymes with my name...LOL

Best ever

So this was my first real drink... and second and third and somehow we got up to a giggly six. My sorority sister introduced me to it. And it was good. I didn't get drunk, it was more of a happy feeling and realizing that I'm not as bad of a dancer as I thought I was. Maybe I shouldn't mention the dancing part...

posted by Davis @ 07:21AM, 6/21/07

This is my breakfast beverage of choice.
It tastes good

I luv this drink ... delicious.
Quite tasty

posted by mojitoaddict @ 03:58AM, 7/03/07

Add a splash of blue curcao and a dot of grenadine and it gives it an entirely different flavor, but it's still completely awesome.
Great, tasty Drink

This was one of my first drinks at my very first visit to a bar and I had 2! I love it! This will be my signature drink from now on!

Just browsing for a recipe with Midori. Yummo, wish I had more sweet and sour, hope someone will go to the store for me, I drank the two I made.
Whisky Sour Mix

posted by Talitha @ 07:48AM, 9/06/07

Does the whisky sour mix come under a different name?

I just tasted this drink for the first time last night and I LOVE IT. Couldnt even taste the alcohol in it at all. At first you get a fruity sweet taste and then it ends with a sour patch kids taste. Very Very Yummy!
Midori Sour O_O

For alkies like myself who think 20%ish ABV is too little... Midori sour + vodka @_@!

posted by Lacy @ 06:34PM, 10/10/07

I tried a midori sour and was so shocked at how good it was bc I'm more of a beer drinker - I cant handle the liquor taste.. But these taste like kool-aid and after bout 4 or five you get a little tipsy.

posted by Jocelynh @ 06:26PM, 10/26/07

The drink is heavenly and in Las Vegas the best ones are at the ORLEANS...YUM
when you go there please order one for me.
Sweet & Fliry

I am not a drinker, but when I first had this drink in Puerto Rico it was so delicious and I could'nt really taste the alcohol in it which I like.
Jolly Rancher

posted by Jenny @ 10:49AM, 11/11/07

I needed something different than my typical Bay Breeze. My Friends husband said try this... it was a little sour at the first drink It tasted good almlost like a Liquid Jolly Rancher and then he substituted the Sprite with Red Bull. Makes a difference. You still taste the drink but it takes the edge off the tartness.

posted by Faye @ 02:14PM, 11/13/07

I am not a fan of most alcohol and I choose not to drink on most occasions, but a good friend recommended it to me and I LOVED it. Barely even noticed the alcohol! Great introduction for those who rarely drink or don't like to taste a lot of alcohol. A++++
Great drink

Can this drink be made into a slushy?
I lose total control...

My boyfriend makes the best Midori Sours. I don't know what he puts in them, but, after I throw back one or two, I just can't keep my hands off him. He keeps asking me to have four, but I am just a little nervous!

posted by Jimbobway @ 04:42PM, 12/28/07
