"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 website and posted for ZWT.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 ounces Midori melon liqueur (melon liqueur)
  • 1 12 ounces coconut rum (Malibu is a fave!)
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • ice


  1. Shake ingredients together and pour into a glass.
  2. (Shaking the ingredients creates a delicious fusion of flavors, but the drink can also be enjoyed by layering the ingredients and enjoying each one in its own right.).

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.
