Midori Splice

A quick and easy favourite because I have a really painful headache and I couldn't stand shaking a shaker for that long. Sorry I couldn't start this comm off a more exciting note.

MIDORI SPLICE

Ingredients:
30ml Midori
30ml Cointreau
15ml Malibu
90ml Pineapple juice
60ml Cream
Crushed ice

Mixing Instructions:

Combine ice, Midori, Cointreau, Malibu, pineapple juice, and cream in a blender; blend well. Pour into large goblet. Serve with a straw.

Garnish:
Pineapple wedge, melon ball and glacé cherry.

Fragrance:
Coconut with undertones of pineapple and sweet melon.
Initial Taste:
Creamy texture. Coconut compliments splashes of pine and a mild hint of honey.
After Taste:
Pine and cream flavours pleasantly linger and mingle in the back of the throat. No harsh after burn at all.

Best drunk:
Any time. It's a chilled fruity drink by nature, but the cream adds extra body to the drink and makes it possible to enjoy after dinner. This drink is perfect for those who find the tang of certain liqueurs and spirits too much for a first drink, or just want a subtle drink before dinner.
