Chenaholic joked about a mini fruit allergy while working to get this cocktail just right. I owe him a bit of gratitude since I love, love, love kiwis! The mix of ingredients offer up a nice mix of sweet and sour. A bit tart mixed with some sweetness is almost reminiscent of something tiki-like...make it and you be the judge!
Note: I doubled up the original recipe but kept the ratios intact.
2 1/4 oz Bacardi Light Rum
3/4 oz Midori Liqueur
3/4 oz Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
3/4 oz Simple Syrup
1/2 Kiwi (muddling)
Kiwi Wheel Garnish
Prepare half a kiwi for muddling by peeling and slicing/dicing it.
Combine the kiwi pieces into a cocktail shaker along with all ingredients except for the kiwi wheel garnish.
Dry shake for 20+ seconds, then add ice and reshape for another 15 seconds until well chilled.
Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a kiwi wheel.
