Wanted to share something, say, a little more exotic! This signature cocktail is from The Opposite House in Beijing and simply called the Kiwi & Thyme.
No, no, no…I haven’t visited there, silly wabbits!
2 ounces of Vodka
1 1/2 ounches of Cloudy Apple Juice
1 ounce of Passion Fruit juice
5 fresh sprigs of Thyme
1 fresh Kiwi
1 piece of Lime, quartered
Muddle (I love that word) the Kiwi and Thyme; add all other ingredients and shake. Strain over fresh ice into a highball glass, and garnish with Thyme and Lime.
And there—according to the hotel, the finished product “should resemble the stunning emerald green glass fascade that fronts The Opposite House, adding to the ambiance of Kengo Kuma’s urban forest and reflecting the vibrant street life of the Sanlitun District.”
Here’s the hotel—what do you think?
I’m not all that impressed with it either; it reminds me of the garish color scheme in my first kitchen from the 70’s….but …..this cocktail sounds pretty darn good!
