Wet Bar Wednesday – Kiwi Fan

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new drink recipe, so here you go!

  • 1.5 oz Bombay Sapphire East gin (or other good gin)
  • 1 oz Midori melon liqueur
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 kiwi for muddling
  • 1/2 kiwi for decorative slices
  • 1 egg white

Peel the kiwi and cut it in half.  Muddle (smoosh) 1/2 of the kiwi in some sort of covered container or shaker.  You really need some sort of covered container or shaker for this, because the egg white will froth up when you shake it and result in a thick, frothy head for the drink.  Add the remaining ingredients except for the sliced kiwi and shake vigorously.

Pour the resulting liquid over ice into a glass and then decorate the rim of the glass with kiwi by cutting the other 1/2 of the kiwi into thick slices.  Make a slice halfway through each slice, up to the middle, and then slide the kiwi slices onto the rim of the glass.

This has a sweet, melony flavor from the Midori.   While gin isn’t my favorite liquor, the taste is well masked by the balance of the lemon and the kiwi with honey.  It’s also a beautiful drink, with a light green hue and even a faintly green foamy head.
