Kiwi Tangerine Bourbon Smash

If you’re looking for a fabulous cocktail recipe for all of your Thanksgiving guests then look no further because I’ve got you covered!  Using fresh, seasonal fruits we create a harmonious libation using only 4 ingredients.  So even though this may look like a fussy drink, it doesn’t take much elbow grease to present a cocktail your guests won’t soon forget!

 

Kiwi Tangerine Bourbon Smash

The simple ingredients list combines tart kiwi, sweet tangerines, classic bourbon and simple syrup.  The result is a mellow and refreshing cooler that might make you not stop at just one.

 

California Kiwifruit

The big (and I mean that literally) secret here is these gigantic kiwis!  They are actually called Mega Kiwi and are grown right here in California. 

 

Halved California Kiwifruit

They have more fruity flesh to fuzz ratio!  Less peeling and more fruit = Easy prepping

 

Sliced tangerines and kiwifruit

Tangerines are in full swing here in the Golden State and just look at these I got my hands on… juicy, bright and full of sweetness!

 

Muddle the kiwifruit

You start by muddling the kiwi in the bottom of a cocktail shaker

 

Add the tangerine juice, bourbon, simple syrup, and ice
