Drink in Case of Memorial Day

A Gin-Spiked Fruit Salad to Start Your Weekend

By UrbanDaddy Staff ·
We know you’ve got some serious three-day weekending to commence.

Just wanted to offer our best wishes for a holiday filled with some well-deserved relaxation and plenty of good drinks.

And should you be in charge of supplying those drinks, well, this might come in handy.

This being Flash, a bright and easygoing cocktail from San Francisco bar The Treasury. It’s another valuable lesson in the positive change we can enact simply by adding a little fresh fruit to gin.

So let’s all do our part to make this world a better place.


1 1/2 oz Aviation Gin
1 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz simple syrup
2 slices peeled kiwi (1/4 inch)
2 slices peeled cucumber (1/4 inch)

In a mixing tin, muddle kiwi and cucumber with lemon juice. Add remaining ingredients, top with ice and shake well. Fine-strain into a coupe and garnish with a thin slice of kiwi.
