Party Tips from Lora – Baratta’s Director of Catering

Looking for an easy yet sweet alcoholic drink for the holiday party? Try making one called The Grinch. This tasty beverage looks green but it is far from bitter like the drinks namesake.



2 ounces of Midori melon liqueur

1/2 ounce of lemon juice

1 teaspoon of simple syrup (your choice)

Strawberries for garnish


To mix just pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice then shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and finally ad a strawberry for garnish. This cocktail takes only 3 minutes to make and is sure to be a hit at the holiday parties!
