Honeydew Margarita

Here is a nice twist to the simple margarita. Note the use of lemon instead of lime. I also find that a slice of fresh honeydew as a garnish makes for a perfect compliment to the drink.


  • 1 oz of Midori liqueur (melon flavoured liqueur)
  • 2 oz Tequila
  • 1 ½ oz Fresh lemon juice
  • ½ oz simple syrup (or to taste)
  • Slices of honeydew for garnish
  • Salt and extra lemon juice for rim
  • Cracked ice


  • Magarita glass (12 oz)
  • Cocktail shaker


  1. Place salt on shallow plate.
  2. Wet rim of glass with extra lemon juice.
  3. Invert glass into salt on plate and swirl to coat rim.
  4. Blend ingredients in cocktail shaker.
  5. Shake and pour into salt rimed glass.
  6. Garnish with appropriate fruit.
  7. Serve.
