This refreshing creation combines the fruity melon flavour of Midori, with crisp apple juice, zesty lemon and fresh mint leaves.  It’s easy to make, served in a simple tumbler (although I went for an old school martini glass) and garnished with a crunchy slice of apple. 


Shake Midori, apple juice, lemon juice and mint in a cocktail shaker.
Pour over ice, garnish with an apple slice and enjoy!

This can be served in a small tumbler.
