Martinis take all shapes, forms, and flavors, as people love transforming their favorite fruits, flavors, and foods into a martini form. It should be no surprise that the kiwi has been one of the fruits that has ended up becoming a martini.

Kiwi is native to China, who still produces the majority of the kiwi in the world today, but the fruit is eaten by millions of people throughout the world. It is also known as “Chinese gooseberry”. Kiwi has also maintained popularity and relevance because of health trends, and because people are focused on being more conscious about what they eat. Kiwi is believed to have all sorts of benefits, from protecting against aging, being a source of Vitamin C and electrolytes, to increasing immunity and possibly protecting from colon cancer. It is a great source for anti-oxidants, as well.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces of vodka
  • ½ skinned kiwi
  • ½ teaspoon of simple syrup
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Muddle the skinned kiwi with simple syrup in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add ice and vodka.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass

There is only one obvious garnish for the drink – a kiwi itself! There is a great variation of martinis made with tropical fruits, and the kiwi martini is an obvious choice for a vacation or a beach. The kiwi may not be as incorporated into cocktails as pineapple juice, but it certainly is a welcome twist on a martini. For those who want to sweeten up the martini a bit, feel free to consider a citrus vodka instead of clear vodka. One great advantage of the kiwi martini is that it is remarkably easy to make, as all it takes is a little bit of muddling, a little syrup, and boom – you have a great relaxing fruity martini on your hands. Try something different and make yourself – or order – a kiwi martini today!
