The new color in sweet cocktails isn't pink --
it's green. Bright green. Midori, the fabulously shallow, gloriously gorgeous Japanese liqueur that tastes like a sweet, juicy honeydew melon (read: Jolly Rancher), is being mixed with everything from rum and vodka to gin and champagne.
This cocktail was created by Andy Seymour, the master mixologist behind the libations at New York's Fashion Week 2007. Think of it as the Paris Hilton of cocktails.
