Backbar bar manager Carlo Caroscio (who spent six years at chef Bryan Voltaggio’s flagship fine-dining restaurant Volt) keeps things relaxed but never dumbed-down. Bartender Joseph Habib’s Kiwi Bird arrives on a tray of ice with a cute kiwi bird gazing into a barrel glass. Scotch is bolstered by vodka, then goes tart and lush with kiwi, coconut cream, lime and orange bitters.



  1. Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake.

  2. Strain into a Tiki mug over crushed ice.

  3. Garnish with a kiwi slice and freshly grated nutmeg.

  4. Serve with a straw.

  5. *Coconut cream: Combine 2 parts Coco Lopez and 1 part coconut milk.

  6. **Kiwi syrup: Combine 1 part Perfect Purée kiwi purée with 1 part simple syrup.
