Tropical Martini

Most tropical cocktails are overly sweet and mostly taste like pineapple as it's a pretty overpowering flavor. In this drink I wanted something with all the tropical fruit flavors, but without that overload of sugar. The following accomplishes that nicely.
  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Midori Melon Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 1/2 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
  • 1/2 oz Frangelico
  • 2 oz Orange Juice
  • 1 oz Half & Half
  • Kiwi Fruit
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Run a slice of kiwi around the glass rim. Shake the ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Strain into the glass and and garnish with a kiwi wheel.
