A Kiwi on a sunny, spring afternoon is a good thing. A peeled and sliced kiwi was muddled with mint leaves, sugar and the very tip of a vanilla bean. In went two ounces of gin (Hendricks in this case) and some ice. Shaky, shaky, shaky. The result was strained into a glass of fresh ice and topped with seltzer water, a slice of kiwi and a sprig of mint.
