This week’s Thristy Thursday drink features Midori. Midori is actually a great drink. It is a melon liqueur and has a very sweet/fruity taste.  Don’t let the green color scare you away. The first time I had it was at Shecky’s Girl’s Night Out a few years ago. With all of that said I bring to you the Berry Bliss.

Source: The Midori Berry Bliss is a spirited, flavorful punch that is perfect for summer parties. Its bright green color adds a flair to any festivity, and the mix of melon, vanilla, raspberry, and pineapple is a taste that will please any palate.If you’re going to freeze an ice ring that fits inside your punch bowl, you may also want to add a few strawberries and other seasonal berries to the water for a fun, floating effect.

Prep Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 6 minutes

Yield: 1 Punch Bowl



  1. Fill a punch bowl half way with ice.
  2. Add Midori, Vanilla Vodka, Skyy Raspberry Infusions, pineapple juice and a splash of soda water.

To keep with the melon theme, I found a few great melon inspired items. Take a look

Featured Look: Orange Crush

I have been obsessed with the color orange lately. I am not sure why, but many of the looks that I have styled lately all featured something orange. I never really liked the color, although it is one of my alma mater’s colors (LU Lincoln Pride), but it is definitely growing on me. I may need to add a few pieces to my wardrobe.
