Drink Recipe: Melon Soda

In honor of New Year's, as well as for two of my New Year's resolutions (learn how to cook better and bartend), last night I made a Melon Soda cocktail. I really liked the non-alcoholic melon soda I had in Japan, and this comes pretty close, I think. Just a bit more alcoholic. There's also not really any exact measurements here, because I mostly just eyeballed it- it comes out alright, but you can adjust to your taste.

What You Need:

Midori melon liqueur
Regular Sprite (DO NOT use Diet Sprite or Sprite Zero- it tastes really weird if you do)
Two lemon wedges
Ice cubes
1 teaspoon lemon juice

What You Do:

Get a big cocktail glass (I used a Hurricane glass, because that's what was in my house, but you could probably use a highball glass as well) and put the ice cubes in. Put the lemon juice, and one of the lemon wedges in on top of the ice cubes. Pour in the Midori, filling approximately 1/3 of the glass. Pour the soda over that and stir. Because the Midori is heavier than the Sprite, it likes to sink to the bottom, so you might need to stir again while you're drinking it. Garnish with the other lemon wedge, and enjoy.
