YIELDS:

one serving

INGREDIENTS

1 Star fruit, rinsed thoroughly (you are going to blend this) 

1 ½ Oz. Kinky Green Vodka

2 Tbsp. water

1 Tbsp. sugar

Club Soda

Slices of Star Fruit to Garnish

DIRECTIONS

1. Wash your star fruit and cut out a beautiful slice in the middle for garnish. Chop the rest in large chunks and add to a blender with sugar and water. (Add more water if you need to so a juice is created). You are make a star fruit juice here)
2. Strain the mixture in a sieve over a large measuring cup (for easy pouring). Chill for one hour.
3. Add the vodka and about 1-½ ounces of the chilled juice to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until well mixed. Pour into a pretty glass filled with ice and top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with the star fruit!

NOTE: You can use any vodka you like. There are several specialty vodkas that would work in this drink but this Kinky Green vodka is flavored with green apple and pear and just go really well with the star fruit. This is a pretty drink and the garnish really “sells” it.

You will have left over juice (if you are only having one cocktail) and that will keep in the refrigerator for days. However, I recommend inviting a few friends over and throwing an exotic cocktail party! Try my Kiwona three ways with Tortilla chips and maybe serve the Kiwona Cocktail at this party too! Enjoy.
