The Kiwitini is the cutest little drink. It’s made with fresh kiwi, lime, white tequila, and carbonated mineral water. It’s bubbly, a little fruity but not too sweet, and a little salty from the rim. You need to try it and let me know what you think 😉
I recently met a friend for a drink and apps, and while we were ordering I realized that I don’t have a “signature drink”. I mean, I guess it doesn’t have to be “signature“, but I don’t think I actually even have a favorite.
Make Your Own Damn Signature Cocktail
I love margaritas, but really only when I’m eating Mexican food. A good dirty martini is fantastic, but we’re not exclusive. I don’t do pina coladas; that shit is too sweet and heavy, and mojitos are just ok.
Usually, if I can’t make up my mind I’ll order a cranberry and vodka, sometimes with pineapple or lime.
So, I decided I wanted to play around with some combinations and make my own. You know, just for shits and giggles.
It had to be summery, because summer is my very favorite season.
The frigid ass cold is just not for me.
After toying with vodka, flavored vodkas, whiskey, white and dark tequilas, juice, soft drinks, crystal light, etc. I found my taste.
The Kiwitini is not too heavy, not too sweet, and the bubblies make it just perfect.
Sparkling mineral water, lime, muddle kiwi and white tequila. It’s so fresh and bubbly and just the right amount of sweet. I love the kiwi in this.
The ratio of kiwi to lime is about 2:1.
The kiwi needs to overpower the lime here, and remember lime is a strong citrus.
I didn’t even know about this until my son told me about it – he dips apple slice in it, and it’s good.
I love my Kiwitini Cocktail because it because it’s different, a little bubbly and has a little kick. Crushed ice also plays a part in how good this is – that combined with the muddled kiwi is so damn good. Big, clunky ice cubes seem to melt faster (I said “seems“), and get in the way of everything.
If your freezer doesn’t make it throw some in your food processor, it works great.
