Valentine's Day

On February 14th, put your crush under a spell with a taste of liquid love and serve up the Midori Sweetheart a fresh blend of passion fruit, elderflower and Yubari melon.  Topped off with a touch of honey and delicate pink flower petals, this tasty cocktail is the perfect addition to a Valentine’s Day celebration at home or out on the town:
