Combine the kiwi, mint leaves and simple syrup in a glass and muddle well. Add your favorite tequila and fresh lemon juice. Shake and strain into a tall glass filled with ice! Garnish with a fresh kiwi slice.
Secrets to Shake it Up:
A smash has four main ingredients: A Spirit Base, a Seasonal Fruit, Sugar and Mint or another herb. So get creative and have fun mixing it up!
Strawberry or Watermelon, Basil and instead of tequila use Vodka or Gin!
Blackberries, Mint and Rum!
Mango, Basil and your favorite Bourbon!
If you want a “WOW” garnish add an edible flower on top! Crushed ice would make this drink a nice frosty treat!
