Kiwicha | Cocktail Party


Kiwifruit, pisco, and passion fruit are the perfect summer companions. There’s no better proof than the Kiwicha, a gentle tropical sour from Enrique Sanchez at La Mar, a Peruvian restaurant in San Francisco.

You don’t have to double-strain the drink; some folks enjoy the crunchy pips of kiwifruit. If you decide not to strain it, you can save yourself some effort by serving the drink unstrained, on the ice you shook it with. Kiwifruit is thick and takes extra time to strain, and you’ve (presumably) got a pool you need to be sitting by.



Peel the half-kiwi and muddle it in your shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake well. Double strain into an ice-filled short glass (or just serve unstrained). Garnish with a slice of fresh or dried kiwi.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
