Grinch Martini

"This melon-flavored delight is worth the ride down Mount Crumpit. But be careful with the syrup. It can easily overpower with its sweetness."


1 ounce Midori

1 ounce vodka

1 ounce lemon juice or lemonade

1/4–1/2 ounce simple syrup, to taste

1 candy cane for garnish

Pour all the liquids into your favorite, ice-filled shaker and shake it like a frustrated Grinch. Strain into a martini glass and slide in a candy cane for holiday garnish. Rim with red, granulated sugar for a special touch. Not the holidays? Use cherries.
