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!
