Frog’s Ass Shot or Gin & Tonic with St. Patrick cheer!

 If Kermit tried this one, he would have to admit, “it’s easy being green!”

Here’s how it shakes up in bartender lingo:
1 count, Bacardi 151 Rum
1 count, Bacardi Light Rum
1 count, Malibu Rum
1 count, Jamaican or Caribbean Coconut Rum
A splash of Midori – green melon liqueur

Shake it all up with some ice, strain into a rocks glass, and it’s bottoms up. The taste is tropical, slightly sweet and smooth enough to slide a frog on its a-double-s!

Or take a traditional Gin and Tonic, splash in just enough Midori to tint it green…and bottoms up! Of course, you could use a few drops of green food coloring as they do for the beer, but then you wouldn’t have that lovely melon flavor.
