Its main feature is the melon-flavored Midori liqueur, which imparts a bright green hue and a fruity profile reminiscent of honeydew or cantaloupe. This is balanced with the citrus tang of orange juice, creating a harmonious blend of flavors. The drink is visually stunning, with a layer of grenadine that settles at the bottom, mimicking the gradient colors of a sunrise. Served in a lowball glass, it is a refreshing choice for those who favor a combination of sweet melon and citrus notes with a visually appealing presentation.
