What do I need to make this 3.5 Syn June Bug Cocktail?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

Firstly you need Midori. Midori is a melon liqueur, and is really rather nice! It’s what gives the June bug it’s green tinge at the bottom of the jug.

You can buy it from most major supermarkets (we’ve seen it in Asda) or you can get it from Amazon.

First, you’ll need a good sized jug or pitcher (about 1 litre). Don’t worry if you haven’t got one, you can pick one like this one up on Amazon.

You’ll also need some nice glasses, like these hi-ball tumblers from Amazon.

How do you work out the Syns in this 3.5 Syn June Bug Cocktail?

We’ve worked this 3.5 Syn June Bug out based on the recipe yielding 2 large glasses, but you can get as many or as few portions as you want, just remember to adjust the Syns accordingly!

If you want to have the jug to yourself, then it’ll be 7 Syns for the lot.

By the way, for the Syn value of Midori, we rang the Syns Hotline 😎
