Envy Drink Recipe

I’ve spent endless hours experimenting with different ingredients, attempting to strike that delicate balance of novelty and taste. When I concocted the Envy Drink, I knew I had found something special. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the recipe that will make you the toast of every party.

How to make Envy Drink

Envy Drink is an energy drink brand known for its unique flavors and formulations. It’s popular among consumers looking for a quick energy boost, typically containing caffeine, vitamins, and other ingredients to provide a mental and physical lift.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz Midori Melon Liqueur
  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Apple Pucker (or alternatively, green apple schnapps)
  • 2 oz Sweet and sour mix
  • 1 oz Lemon-lime soda
  • Ice
  • A slice of lime for garnishing

Instructions

  1. Prep Your Glass: First, chill your cocktail glass. You can refrigerate it or fill it with ice and let it sit while preparing the cocktail.
  2. Mix it Up: In a cocktail shaker, pour in the Midori, vodka, Apple Pucker, and sweet and sour mix. Add a generous amount of ice. We’re aiming for a perfectly chilled cocktail here. Seal the shaker well.
  3. Shake it Off: Shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. This not only chills the drink but also mixes the ingredients perfectly.
  4. Pour it Out: Discard ice from your pre-chilled cocktail glass. Strain and pour your deliciously green cocktail into the glass.
  5. Fizzle with Soda: Top it off with lemon-lime soda to add a refreshing effervescence.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Add a slice of lime for that elegant garnish – and voila! Your envy-worthy drink is ready to be served.

Tips

  • Ensure all your ingredients are suitably chilled. This will keep the drink from diluting too quickly and maintain its flavor.
  • While shaking, give it your all. This combines the ingredients well and adds air to the mix, giving the cocktail its delightful frothiness.
  • You can adjust the quantities of the ingredients to suit your taste. Just remember to keep the balance – the sweet and sour mix is essential to counter the sweetness of the Midori and apple schnapps.
  • A traditional martini glass is preferred for serving the Envy Drink to accentuate its vibrant green color and add a touch of elegance. However, feel free to use any glass you have on hand. The taste won’t change!

What to serve with

The Envy Drink is undeniably sweet, with a hint of sourness from the mix and a refreshing tang of apple. Here are some thoughtfully chosen bites that would make excellent companions to your Envy Drink.

1. Spicy Tacos: The spicy, tangy, and earthy flavours in tacos can beautifully contrast the sweet and sour nature of the Envy Drink. Plus, the high protein content in the filling will help balance the booze!

2. Cheese Platter: A selection of sharp cheddar, nutty Gouda, or creamy Brie works exceptionally well with the fruit-forward flavours of Envy Drink. Avoid pairing it with sweet cheeses like cream cheese to balance the sweetness.

3. Sushi: The subtle tastes of sushi combined with the tinge of Wasabi can tame the sweetness of the Envy Drink while enhancing the melon notes of the Midori.

4. Grilled Seafood: Whether it’s shrimp skewers or a fillet of grilled fish with a dash of lemon, grilled seafood with citrusy notes can harmoniously align with the crisp and fruity notes in Envy Drink making it an experience to relish.

5. Charcuterie Board:

A fine assortment of cured meats can wonderfully cut through the sweetness of this cocktail. Think prosciutto, salami, chorizo – all these preserved goodies are a surefire hit when paired with the Envy Drink.

6. Light Salads: A refreshing green salad with a mustard vinaigrette or a Greek salad with tangy feta could cleanse your palate and allow you to relish the notes of the Envy Drink even more.

Ingredients substitutes

Suppose you’re eager to recreate the bright allure of the Envy Drink but find yourself missing some ingredients, worry not. Several substitutions you can make will still deliver a deliciously vibrant cocktail. Here’s a handy guide to swap things in and out according to what your home bar stocks.

For Midori Melon Liqueur

Midori brings the drink a unique melon flavour and signature green hue. If you can’t find Midori, look for another melon liqueur. If melon liqueur isn’t available at all, try a combination of melon syrup (commonly used in coffee shops) and a splash of a clear spirit to retain the alcohol content.

For Vodka

Vodka is chosen for its neutrality, but if your collection lacks vodka or you want to experiment, you can substitute it with white rum or gin for a twist. These spirits have their own subtle flavors that can give a new dimension to your cocktail.

For Apple Pucker

Apple Pucker is responsible for the tangy apple kick in the drink. A suitable substitute would be green apple schnapps or even apple cider if you’re in a pinch. To retain the sour edge, you may add a small amount of fresh lemon juice if using a sweeter alternative like cider.

For Sweet and Sour Mix

Sweet and sour mix is a staple in cocktail making, but if you’re out, making your own is quite simple. Just mix equal parts lemon juice and simple syrup (which is just water and sugar heated until the sugar dissolves, then cooled). Adjust the sweetness or sourness to your liking.

For Lemon-lime Soda

Almost any clear carbonated drink can be used here. For less sweetness, consider club soda or flavored sparkling water. If lemon-lime soda isn’t an option, combining soda water with a squeeze of fresh lemon and lime can convincingly mimic the original ingredient.

Final Thoughts

Enjoy your Envy Drink and prepare yourself for the appreciative nods from your guests. Trust me, this is one drink they won’t forget in a hurry!
