A Japanese Slipper is a slightly tart, slightly sweet cocktail that makes a fantastic summertime after-dinner drink. This particular recipe calls for brand-name high-end liqueurs, but this cocktail is great even made with cheaper alcohols. Midori is the brand name for a melon liqueur. You can also use the less expensive, Dekuyper’s melon liqueur. Cointreau is the brand name for an orange liqueur. You can also use less expensive triple-sec, which comes in a variety of brands and prices. Lastly, you will need fresh lemon juice. If you juice fresh lemons, limes and oranges with any regularity, I highly recommend the Cilio Commercial Grade Citrus Press. It comes with a hefty price tag and takes a bit of counter space, but we have enjoyed ours immensely.
