It’s not Christmas without the Grinch. This cocktail pays homage to everyone’s favorite grump, not just in color, but in its slightly sour taste, too. Midori mixed with vodka and a bit of lemon juice makes for a candy-like sweet-and-sour drink that is a fun celebration of Christmas’ favorite villain. Add a maraschino cherry to remind you that even the Grinch has a heart.

½ ounce lemon juice or sour mix
1 teaspoon simple syrup
1 maraschino cherry for garnish
