Kiwi – Pick up ripe and juicy kiwi to make this drink. To check if they are perfectly ripened, press them gently, they should give back a little.
Do not get kiwis that have soft patches, as they are overripe and do not lend that tangy taste to the drink.
Sugar – Adjust the quantity of sugar as per your taste and preference. You can also use honey instead of sugar as a healthy alternative.
Lime Juice – Use freshly squeezed lime juice for the best taste.
Club Soda – Use chilled unflavored unsweetened club soda to top the drink.
Mint Leaves – Mint leaves add a refreshing flavor, so do not skip this ingredient. You can replace mint with basil leaves.
Lime Slices – Garnish your drink with some lime slices.
Ice – Add in as many ice cubes as you want!
