I’m not a huge fan of green beer. Or whisky. So on St. Patrick’s Day, I opt into drinking my own green concoction. I call it the Leprechaun Kiwi Drop. It’s an Irish cocktail gone tropical. Ok, it’s actually not Irish at all. In fact, there’s nothing traditional about it. But I’m Irish and I drink what I want.
On a side note – Sam and I both have dark-ish complexions, but we’re both part-Irish and occasionally get red hairs. Does this mean we could have a red-haired child? Weird.
How are you celebrating St. Patty’s?
[Note: Sam doesn’t love pulp OR kiwis, and was not a fan of this drink. I’d recommend straining the seeds and pureeing as finely as possible if you have a similarly strange aversion.]
Blend kiwis in food processor until smooth and frothy. Add to shaker along with juice from lime and several ice cubes and shake. In a small bowl, mix together sugar and lime zest, and pour onto a flat plate. Next, run the used lime along the rim of a martini glass and dip in the sugar mixture. Pour cocktail into glass and enjoy!
