Happy Hour: Kiwi Cobbler

Mar 19 2013 - 7:00am

When picnicking this Spring and Summer, don't pack a fruit cobbler; shake up a refreshing cobbler cocktail instead! Consisting of kiwi, mint, vanilla bean, tequila, and club soda, this tequila drink may sound complicated, but its actually easy to make on the go in a mason jar.

Drop all of the ingredients in the bottom of a mason jar and use a wooden muddler to squish the fruit, bruise the mint, and incorporate all of the flavors together.

Keep reading to see more photos and the recipe.

The mason jar doubles as a shaker, too. Fill it with ice; screw the cap on; and shake until the mixture becomes frothy and chilled.

Finally, top the cobbler with club soda to make it sparkle. Sit back, relax, and sip on this cooling cobbler cocktail. Just be sure to bring enough for seconds. You'll want a round two of the vanilla bean, mint, and kiwi concoction.
