Tips

  • Ripe Kiwis: For the kiwi puree, use ripe kiwis for a naturally sweet and tart flavor.
  • Coconut Cream: If the coconut cream is too thick, you can thin it with a bit of coconut milk or water for easier mixing.
  • Adjusting Sweetness: Feel free to alter the amount of simple syrup based on your preferred sweetness level.
  • Alcohol or Not: This cocktail is versatile; omit the vodka for a family-friendly version that everyone can enjoy.
  • Presentation Tips: The clear glass showcases the vibrant green color, and a martini glass can lend an elegant touch.
  • Garnish with Meaning: The pomegranate arils add a delightful flavor and symbolize the Grinch’s heart growing three sizes.
