"First created in a T.G.I Friday’s restaurant in Busan, Korea, this cocktail has become a hit in bars around the world. June Bug is another name for the cotinis nitida beetle, a bug which inhabits the trees of hardwood forests. The June Bug cocktail was probably named for its brownish golden color which resembles that of the beetle. It also shares a soft, velvety texture with the creatures, whose bodies are covered in fine, silky hairs." This recipe is a little different than the ones already posted on 'Zaar. It is taken from the Midori.com website and posted for ZWT.

A belated toast to the nuptial's of Kate and Prince William. Yeah, I was invited, but I didn't want it to conflict with anything else in my life. Keep that to yourself, because "mum's" the word.

Yummy drink. I made it as a martini since my freezer is still broken - and it's good without the ice too. Thanks alli. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6 Family Picks.
