Titanic Uplift Cocktail

Titanic Uplift Cocktail
Adapted from 1001 Cocktails

This past weekend, I got together with several friends for another Titanic Dinner, featuring dishes that were served on that fateful voyage. I'll be featuring some of these dishes all week.

We started the evening with this delicious cocktail. We don't think this drink was actually served on the Titanic but since it was named after Titanic, we thought this drink was appropriate. This drink is refreshingly sweet and I love the lime green colour. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 oz melon liqueur
1 oz gin
4 oz orange juice
Squeeze of lime juice
Lime to Garnish
Ice

Directions:

1. Shake and strain into a large martini glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lime slice.

What a cool idea (I just checked out your previous Titanic Dinner posts)! The drink looks very refreshing - I'm a big gin and lime juice fan, so I know I would love them!

Is there a suitable substitute for the melon liqueur and the gin if you're a non-drinker?

I am sure bookmarking this one.
My hubby bought 2 years back a bottle of melon liqueur and we only used it once and this ones really looks yumm.

I don't drink, but it looks delish.

I certainly love the Titantic Dinner idea, how original.

What a great idea having a Titanic Dinner...the drink sounds so good with the melon liqueur...I love reading memorabilia about the Titanic and find the stories of the survivors so interesting.

Love melon liqueur, but haven't had it in ages. Maybe I'll indulge in a bottle this summer. A swank cocktail!
