"Best of all is a piña colada, the juice of a perfectly ripe pineapple - a delicious drink in itself - rapidly shaken up with ice, sugar, lime and Bacardi rum in delicate proportions. What could be more luscious, more mellow and more fragrant?" - TRAVEL magazine, December 1922
What happens to your pina colada when you add sweet melon chunks and a splash of cool, fresh cream? It's juicy, it's smooth, and, boy, is it creamy - it's the one and only Midori Colada!
Midori was born and raised on the sunny beaches of Mexico. She is named after Midori, the beautiful green coloured liqueur with the refreshing and fruity taste of melon. Midori is the Japanese word for "green", and Colada is the Spanish word for "strained". But you'll feel no strain when you feast your eyes on this luscious lady! Though you may be green with envy! With the legs of a drag queen, the eyes of an enchantress, and the booty of a Dallas Cowgirl, she's the uber-babe you just want another taste of! But she's no femmebot - under that calm, cool exterior is a playful kitten just waiting to take you up on your next wild idea. Jamaica today, Japan tomorrow!
Midori is vintage Cheesecake - one of the founding members since 2006. She has performed nationally and internationally, and her rise to notariety includes being featured as a character in the video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. She can make you scream, she can make you moan, and she WILL make you laugh!
Like the drink that bears her name, this chocolate chiquita is a unique twist on a classic favorite. Just as that hint of melon takes your casual blender drink from poolside to party time, Midori will surprise, charm, and leave you begging for more!
So toss on those shades and sidle up to the bar - it's time for something you'll really like!
