First, I must say that this is not my recipe. I found it on Absolut.com. I can say that I made this kiwi cocktail and thought it so delicious that I wanted to share it with you. It’s simple with just three ingredients and easy to make.


Recipe for The Kiwi Cocktail

Ingredients:

  • 1 part cognac

  • 1 part fresh lemon juice

  • 1 part simply syrup

Preparation:

  1. Fill a rock glass half way with crushed ice.

  2. Pour in the cognac.

  3. Add more crushed ice to the rim of the glass.

  4. Pour in the lemon juice.

  5. If needed, add more crushed ice

  6. Pour in the simple syrup.

Note: When you pour in each ingredient, the crushed ice may "crush" a bit. So I filled the glass about halfway with crushed ice and added the cognac. I alternated this step with each ingredient, topping with crushed ice. In my kiwi cocktail, on the second mix, I had also adjusted to make the lemon juice and simply syrup equal parts.

Where is the kiwi in this cocktail, you may ask? Why, it's the garnish!
