Kiwi gin is citrusy and refreshing. It's a great summer cocktail ingredient to have on hand!
OK, so you don't have to make a small batch of this kiwi gin. I made a small one, because I only had a small amount of gin in the house. Size this recipe up to make as much as you like!
So remember when I made Tangerine Vodka for that Tangerine White Russian recipe? It reminded me of how much I like making boozy infusions. When I was coming up with a drink recipe not too long ago, I once again totally used fruit that I'd bought for Darrol Henry and threw it into a jar of booze to infuse. It was a Good Idea.
Kiwi and gin are a really tasty match. Bright, tangy kiwi really shines with the flowery flavors in a bottle of gin. I can't wait to mix this kiwi gin into a cocktail for next week. Experimentation begins....NOW!
One thing I love about infusing booze is seeing how the colors change as the flavor steeps. Here's the kiwi gin as it progressed last week, and grab the super simple recipe below!
Small-Batch Kiwi Gin
You can double or triple this recipe to make as much kiwi gin as you want.
- 6 ounces vegan gin
- 1 kiwi peeled and cut into chunks
- Combine the kiwi and gin in a small jar, and give it a good shake. Stick it in the fridge for 3-5 days, shaking daily, until it smells nice and kiwi-licious. I infused mine for 4 days.
- When you're ready, pour the gin through a fine mesh strainer into a forever container, and toss the fruit into the compost bin. Store in the fridge.
