Shizuoka Prefecture is actually the third producer of kiwi fruits in Japan way ahead of the rest!
It is full season for all kind of varieties during the winter and here is a basic recipe for any kind of this exquisite fruit!


Kiwi fruit: 1
Home-made limoncello (Italian lemon liqueur)
Sugar syrup: 1 teaspoon
Tonic water

Peel and manually crush the kiwi fruit finely to a pulp.
Pour inside the glass part of a Boston Shaker with all the other ingredients.
Shake well.
Take out cleanly half of the ice.
Add tonic water and stir gently.
Pour the lot in a tulip glass and decorate with fresh mint.

A very refreshing liquid dessert!
Great balance between sweetness and tanginess!
As it is low in alcohol it will suit young people and ladies!
It actually contains an excellent amount of very healthy ingredients thanks to the fresh kiwi, the lemon and the mint!
