#DOTW: Vodka Kiwi Limeade

It’s a very different Memorial Day this year. Not only is it raining here in NYC, but we’re all still under the Stay-At-Home order by governor Cuomo. All the beaches are closed for now, the boardwalks will be empty, bars are closed until further notice. Most of us here in the Big Apple will retreat to our yards, porches, stoops, and yes, even fire escapes, to grab some fresh air and maybe have a cocktail. It is Saturday after all, even though that’s irrelevant for most of us. I heard alcohol consumption is up all over the US, and some attribute it to depression and isolation. I personally have lighter idea on why that might be the case: We don’t have to get up early tomorrow! This featured cocktail is soooo delicious. I had a bunch of them (without judgment), and I can’t get enough. Treat yourself.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Titos Handmade Vodka (or quality vodka of your choice)
  • 2 oz limeade
  • 1 oz lemonade
  • 1 slice of (peeled) kiwi

In a cocktail shaker, muddle 1 slice of kiwi. Add ice, vodka, limeade, and lemonade. Shake well. Fill a cocktail glass with ice. Strain cocktail into the the glass. Garnish with an additional silce of kiwi.

Cheers and be safe!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
