Kiwi Ghost cocktail



I choose to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by avoiding green beer and enjoying a decidedly green cocktail. This is a variation on a Green Ghost, incorporating kiwi fruit. 

  • Kiwi fruit
  • 1/4 oz lime juice
  • 2 oz gin
  • 1/4 oz green chartreuse 
  • 1/4 oz Cointreau

Muddle the pulp and juice of a kiwi fruit with 1/4 oz lime juice. Add ice to the shaker and then add the gin, chartreuse and Cointreau. Shake until the tin is frosty. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with kiwi berries, if you can find them. They are delicious!
