Celebrating the last few weeks of summer with this refreshing and tropical cocktail. Inspired by this month's scent, Serene Surf, get ready for a kiwi and coconut flavorful cocktail. Brought to you by Mind-Over-Batter.
How to kiwi puree:
- 2 Kiwis skin removed and quartered
- 2 tablespoons Granulated sugar
For the kiwi lime smash
- 2-3 tablespoons Kiwi puree
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Sweetened coconut cream like Coco Lopez
- 1 small lime quartered
- 1.5 ounces Coconut rum
- 1/2 ounce Light rum
Make the kiwi puree:
In a blender, quickly puree kiwi and sugar. Transfer to a small jar with a tight fitting lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Puree makes enough for about 3 cocktails. Double or triple as needed.
Make the cocktail:
To a cocktail shaker (or a 12 ounce mason jar) add the kiwi puree, lime quarters, and coconut cream. Muddle with a muddler or back of a wooden spoon until the limes are fragrant and have released their juice. Add the coconut and light rums followed by the ice. Close and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds. Pour into an 8 ounce glass and top with seltzer.
