The Weekend Cocktail: A recipe to toast Memorial Day and Summer

Print This Post Print This Post


In this day and age we often forget the historical meaning of Memorial Day. Memorial Day history is about honoring those who have died in service to our nation. It is about remembering the courage and strength about those who gave their lives. It is also the first official day of summer so I celebrate and honor all who have served our country and died in service to any nation, as well as the start of summer.

Memorial Day Summer Cocktail

Juice of a lime, freshly squeezed

2 kiwi fruit, diced with some larger chunks for garnish

1/2 teaspoon finely minced ginger

Slightly crushed small piece of ginger

6 Tablespoons simple sugar syrup

3 cups Ginger Ale


Kiwi and lime rind for garnish

Rub lip of two chilled tumblers with ginger, drop into cup. Add ice. In a separate mixing container, add sugar syrup, minced ginger, diced kiwi, and lime juice; mix well. Pour ginger ale into chilled tumbler, and pour juice mix over soda, making sure to swirl minced ginger and kiwi back into suspension first. Garnish with kiwi and lime rind. Enjoy!
