With all the kiwi's that I bought this week, I thought it would be a perfect time to greet my guests with a fabulous kiwitini. It looks refreshing and perfect for the weather. Besides I need to use them up before they go bad. It is Friday, so it is time for a cocktail for all of us! Besides, it is Friday the 13th. What better way to make it a good day than to get your drink on!
1 oz Citrus Vodka
1/2 oz Melon Liqueur
1/2 oz Limoncello
1 Kiwi Fruit (cut into 1/4 pieces with the skin removed)
2 oz White grape cocktail or Juice •
In a mixing glass "muddle" the kiwi for 10 seconds. Add remaining ingredients, fill with ice and shake. Fill a martini glass with ice, strain ingredients and garnish with a slice of fresh kiwi.
I have lots of leftover strawberries too, maybe I will try a strawberry kiwi martini to mix it up a bit.
