How to Make a Japanese Slipper

I thought I'd switch it up a lil bit, and go with a bit more of an exotic feel. Midori is a cool lemon based liqueur from Japan. This cocktail was formed in Melbourne, Australia, though. There is a lot of Asian influence in Australia. According to Midori World, "Perfect cocktail for bar
(ingredients) MIDORI、white CuraƧao、 lemon juice
High alcoholic content
Semi-dry flavor with champagne glass
The Japanese Slipper weve all heard of the cocktail, but have we ever thought about where its name comes from? Japanese slippers may sound like a type of designer footwear, but the term originally referred to traditional, simple Japanese sandals, which in turn draw their origin from ancient Egyptian footwear. These Japanese slippers are said to have first made their way to the West after the Second World War, when American servicemen brought them home from occupied Japan, and they eventually evolved into the rubber flip-flops we now wear to the beach. However, what they have in common with the cocktail of the same name remains unknown to this day. Variations on this recipe include substituting the triple sec for vodka, making for a powerful cocktail."
