You're a sweet one, Mister Grinch!

To help “spruce up” your holiday cheer over the next few weeks, A Big To Do will be bringing you some yummy and festive holiday cocktails. 

Today, we showcase….


This is a great conversation starter at any holiday party, due first to its lovely colors and second to telling someone its name. However, don’t be fooled by its namesake because this pretty little sipper is the Grinch post loving transformation with those cute little Who’s down in Whoville. The main ingredient here is Midori, which is melon flavored liquor with the perfect amount of sweetness. 

To make the Grinch combine 2 ounces Midori, ½ ounce lemon juice and 1 teaspoon simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice then shake, shake, shake it! Pour into a chilled martini glass that has been rimmed with red sugar crystals (can be found in the baking section of any grocery store). Feel free to garnish with anything that you fancy from a sprig of evergreen to a tiny red ornament. Cheers y'all!
