KiPin Mojito

This month for the Improv Cooking Challenge we were challenged to use kiwi and pineapple. The first thing that pops into my mind when we talk tropical fruit is cocktails!  Thus born the KiPin Mojito!


I had a group of girlfriends over to help me taste test the cocktail. I knew what was in a mojito, but I wasn't sure of the distribution of fruit, lime juice, soda, etc.  We made the first batch without any sugar except for the sweetened lime juice. It fell a little flat so we added some simple syrup and that made the cocktail refreshing and tasty.  Some observations that we made were to chill the soda and the rum before mixing the cocktail, you can never use too much mint, and adding a touch of simple syrup made all the difference!


Muddling makes a difference, too. You want to mash up the fruit so it doesn't get stuck in the straw!


I have learned that sharing a cocktail with girlfriends is a very pleasant way to spend an hour! We should all do this much more often.
