Ingredients

  • 4 mint leaves muddled
  • 1 lime quartered
  • 2 tbsp raw sugar for the rim
  • 2 kiwis peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 oz white rum
  • ice
  • 4 oz club soda
  • *optional garnishes extra sliced kiwi, lime, and extra sprigs of fresh mint

Instructions

  • Rinse and pat mint leaves dry. Muddle the mint leaves to release the oils using a mortar and pestle, or you can do it directly in the cocktail shaker with the back of a wooden spoon. Just gently press down on the leaves (you don't want mint mush).
  • In a mini food processor, puree the two peeled and chopped kiwis and agave nectar.  
  • Next, use one of the lime slices to run along the rim of two glasses. Pour the raw sugar in a shallow bowl and dip the rim of the glasses to coat with the sugar and fill with ice.
  • Pour the kiwi mixture, 2 oz light rum, 1 oz fresh lime juice (2-3 of the quarters squeezed, depending on the size of the lime), and muddled mint in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and pour into the two prepared low ball glasses.
  • Top each glass with 2 oz of club soda and stir to mix. Garnish with extra kiwi, lime, and mint leaves.
