The Midori adds color and unique flavor to a classic. Looks even better garnished with fresh melon balls, frozen and skewered on toothpicks.

Whoa! This was super strong. I really enjoy Midori and was excited to try this margarita. I only used equal amts of the tequila/Midori though..had I used more it definitely would of tasted like straight tequila! Smooth going down so it gets an extra star for that. I just wish the Midori had stood out more. If I make it again I would just increase the Midori. Thanks for posting!

I was looking for Christmas color cocktails and decided to ty this. I made it as you suggested (same proportions), AND added a little blue Curacao (about 1/2 oz.) to amp up the green colour. I am enjoying it now and will have at Christmas for my guests

This is a good drink!! The tequila is a little strong so when I made a second drink, I used less tequila and a little bit more melon liqueur.It came out nice. I will definitely be making this drink again. It's a nice change from "regular" margaritas. Thanks for sharing your recipe LW. Made for the March 2008 Bevy Tag game.
