COCKTAILS – CRAVING FOR MIDORI?

I’ve come across quite a few bartenders who didn’t really like the taste or the idea of using Midori behind their bars. Some find it a bit of a bubble gum or ‘candish’ drink and others just didn’t like it because its cloying or sweet. Anyhow there’s tonnes of ladies who love them and heaps of bartenders that use them everyday in their bar..I personally find it to be a decent drink that can be quite addictive among women when you get the right mix…

I’ve conjured some drinks that’ll probably be good to try out this weekend…NOW GET SHAKIN!

    not too sure mate…
    but i reckon a wide selection of flavoured daiquiri’s and margarita might fit right in. Lots of variety, interesting colour and fancy garnishes..
