Jealous June Cocktail is a refreshing and fruity mix with Midori Melon Liqueur. The recipe I present to you is from the World Encyclopedia of Cocktails, but I add extra Lemon, Yuzu and Turmeric Cordial produced by Mr Fitzpatrick’s to give a little citrus kick to the mix.
Jealous June Cocktail is vibrant, tasty and refreshing.
You can’t imagine how much I love Midori Melon Liqueur. Maybe I tried most of the cocktails known with this liqueur, but there is always something new or old to work. If you are like me and always look for better weather or sunshine, I am sure you’ll love this cocktail. I know, is best to enjoy it somewhere on the beach or to chill in the veranda but you could have a sip by the fireplace as well.
The excellent pairing of Orange coming from the Cointreau and Melon is fantastic. Not to mention, the smooth, lovely boost by the magnificent Havana Rum. Overall, the cocktail is low ABV because of the liqueurs in the recipe. The Rum is there to add a little kick but not overpower the beautiful flavours from your liqueurs. You may wonder what’s with the cordial.
Well, the vintage produced cordials by Mr Fitzpatrick’s are splendid. All of the production and flavour released by the family-run company are wonderful. Instead of using syrups, I use the cordials because of natural sugar or no added sugar at all. Also, I love supporting local producers and use their products in my cocktails.
I will add more recipes on my COCTAIL page using different cordials to show the fantastic selection of flavours they have to offer. Enjoy and let me know if you have a favourite cocktail with Midori Melon Liqueur.
