Did you know that the Japanese Slipper cocktail was invented at Mietta’s in Melbourne in 1984? A fine city and a fine year (although it was the year I asked our hairdresser to do me a “Scott Carne” so it’s very possible I was quite insane that year). Try it this Australia Day.
30 ml Midori
30 ml Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
30 ml Lemon Juice
Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a cherry. Easier than King Street on a Friday night.
