A Sweet Melissa is a gin-based cocktail that was named by its creator, Daniel Bouie, after his wife Melissa Chabran Bouie. Sweet Melissa is made with gin, tonic water and a splash of Jack Daniel's in a short glass of ice. Care must be taken not to add too much whiskey to this gin & tonic beverage.
"Sweet Melissa" also appears in the lyrics from Barry Manilow's hit song Could It Be Magic, referring to his Arista labelmate Melissa Manchester, apredating the cocktail by several decades even though the lyrics do not appear in the original version by Featherbed.
