The almost adults requested a cocktail so like any good home bartender inquiry into particular tastes and desires were asked. Something fresh, sweet, and pretty was requested. Our strawberry season always seems so short, and I had saved some good looking strawberries especially to use in a cocktail. An easy marriage sprang to mind when vodka was requested (funny how that seems to be a young persons go to spirit as a Screwdriver was it in my youth!). Proud to show off our kiwi products from @kiwispiritdistillery, the Premium New Zealand is a smooth and tasty vodka made from clean water sources that leaves a velvety mouthfeel. Combined with @kiwispiritdistillery Strawberry Distilled Liqueur it added a decadent touch to help sweeten the passion.
Muddle a couple of juicy strawberries and a few small homegrown mint leaves
1 jigger (30mls) Premium New Zealand Vodka @kiwispiritdistillery
