Kiwi Kiss Drink Recipe

BubblyBar(2)
Lemon, ginger, and the tart freshness of the kiwi fruit come together in this delectably crisp cocktail. Be sure to use ripe kiwis to give your cocktail the most flavour.
Ingredients

1 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
3/4 oz. lemongrass-ginger syrup
1/2 oz. soju
6 oz. dry sparkling sake, such as Zipang
1 thick slice of kiwi, cut into a square, for garnish
6″ section of fresh lemongrass, cleaned and peeled, for garnish

Directions

Step 1: Add the peeled kiwi slices to a rocks glass along with the Lemongrass-Ginger Syrup and soju. Using a muddler, mash the kiwi.

Step 2: Fill the glass 3/4 full with ice. Top with the sparkling sake.

Step 3: Use a metal cocktail pick to make a hole through the square slice of kiwi. Thread the kiwi slice onto the lemongrass “spear” as a garnish.
