Kiwi Martini Cocktail - TASTY!


So my wife bought some Kiwi Fruit a while ago that were starting to get a bit soft. And we were having friends over for dinner ... so with help from Master Bartender Dave, we made the following Kiwi Martini Cocktail Recipe:
Muddle one Kiwi with a teaspoon of simple sugar syrup in a Martini Shaker. Add three ounces Vodka, squeeze half a lime, and lots of ice. Shake well and pour (including Kiwi seeds that add flavor/texture) into optionally sugar rimmed martini glass. Garnish with a slice of Kiwi for visual effect and have the wife's smile for the camera! ;-)
Be sure to scroll down for the Black & White (and Ki-Lime Green) picture at the bottom.
