Music for your Mouth: Blind Melon

I’m not going to muck around too much with today’s post, I only have a couple of minutes to upload it. So straight to the point, today’s Music for our Mouth comes to you from Blind Melon. And what have I made? A blind melon! Party on!

blindmelonI listened to a bit of Blind Melon when I was younger – the song at the bottom is probably their most well known and it’s pretty darn catchy. I had never seen the video clip before though – check it out! The beginning made me really sad (why do I always feel so much empathy for characters, even when I know they are just characters?) but the ending brought me joy! Seriously, I should start watching this every morning. Precious little bumble bees!

Japanese Slipper

30ml Midori
30ml Cointreau
30ml lemon juice

Put Midori, Cointreau and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, and shake it like a polaroid picture. Strain into glass and serve with a lemon garnish. Easy.

    That video was huge back in the day! Everyone wanted to be the bee girl. The Japanese Slipper sounds delightful.

    1. I can’t believe I’d never seen it before?! I’ve listened to the song heaps. I love the bee girl, I want to be her too!

    Blind Melon was my favorite band for years and years! Do you remember their video for Toes Across the Floor? Amazing. I wish I was drinking this cocktail now and binge watching Blind Melon videos. Sigh.

    1. EPIC video! Hehe. You should totally make this cocktail and binge watch Blind Melon videos! Sounds the best!

  5. WAtched the vid and surprised to hear I did know that song – cute video – not sure I ever had a japanese slipper (though I have heard of them) – love the green colour of it

    1. You’ll have to make one – can’t go wrong with green, right?!
