Drink recipe: Kiwi kiss

Lemon and the tart freshness of the kiwi fruit come together in this delectably crisp cocktail. Be sure to use kiwis that are ripe (but not so soft that they have wrinkles) to give your cocktail the most flavour.

Ingredients
  • 1 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 ounce lemongrass syrup
  • 1/2 ounce soju
  • 6 ounces dry sparkling sake, such as Zipang
  • 1 thick slice of kiwi, cut into a square, for garnish
  • 6-inch section of fresh lemongrass, cleaned and peeled, for garnish

Directions
Add the peeled kiwi slices to a rocks glass along with the lemongrass syrup and soju. Using a muddler, mash the kiwi. Fill the glass three-quarters full with ice. Top with the sparkling sake. 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.
