Summer Cocktails: Kiwi Mint Julep

photo from www.recipezaar.com

Mint Juleps are fine for the Kentucky Derby, and their tropical cousin the Mojito is fine for the beach, but where does one turn for a nice afternoon drink in the backyard? This Kiwi Mint Julep is exotic and fruity, but fresh enough to quench your lazy afternoon thirst.


  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 cups ice
  • 3 kiwi fruits, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons frozen limeade concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 3 ounces bourbon (optional)
  1. Dissolve sugar in hot water in a 1-cup measure; let cool slightly.
  2. Combine ice, kiwis, limeade, mint, the sugar mixture and bourbon, if using, in a blender.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Serve immediately.
