12 Days of Madtini Holiday Cocktails #7: The Grinch

The GrinchOne of the most eagerly awaited moments each holiday season is the annual airing of the Dr. Seuss classic ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas‘. Produced and directed by Chuck Jones, the animated show features the voice of horror movie legend Boris Karloff as the voice of the narrator and the Grinch.

The Grinch’s sour personality is tasted through the melon liqueur. The maraschino cherry represents his heart, which was ‘2 times too small’.

Ingredients

  • 3 oz of Melon Liqueur
  • 1.5 oz of fresh lemon juice
  • tbsp simple syrup
  • 1 Maraschino cherry

Preparation
Add the melon liqueur, lemon juice and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice. Shake vigorously, strain and serve. Add a maraschino cherry as a garnish representing the Grinch’s shrunken heart.
