Here's a tasty libation that Kiwi fans will certainly enjoy. It has the unique sweetness of the fruit, and when served, features the beautiful kiwi green color, highlighted by the contrasting black seeds. Feel free to adjust the recipe to your tastes. Give it a try, our "Cocktail of the Week", the Kiwitini...!!!
3 oz. Vodka
2 oz. Sprite
2 tbsp. Simple Syrup
Peel the Kiwi. Cut out one slice for a garnish. Muddle the remainder of the Kiwi with the 2 tbsp. of Simple Syrup (simple syrup is basically equal parts of boiled water and sugar). Strain the muddled Kiwi into an ice filled cocktail shaker. Add the Vodka, cover, and shake vigorously. Strain the mixture into a Martini glass, add the sprite, stir gently, and add the kiwi wheel for garnish. Simple, tasty, and elegant .... the Kiwitini.
