  • 1
    Pour kiwi-strawberry vodka over ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake for 1-2 minutes. Pour into two large martini glasses.
  • 2
    Carefully drizzle the melon schnapps down the edge of each martini glass. The schnapps has a higher sugar content that the watered down vodka, so will naturally ease into the bottom of the glass if poured slowly and carefully.
  • 3
    Pour grenadine down the side of each martini glass. The grenadine has an even higher sugar content, and will slide below the schnapps.
  • 4
    Serve with speared kiwi and watermelon, if desired.

Three liquers, baby.

That's how we do thangs 'round these parts. Layered cocktails are all the rage, so we're going to show you how to mix it up layered style with a Kiwi-Strawberry Melon Martini.

To start off this beautiful tri-colored drink, start by shaking kiwi-strawberry vodka with a good bit of ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a big martini glass.

Now grab an ounce of melon schnapps and pour it down the side of the glass. Gently, ever so gently. The schnapps is higher in sugar than your shaken vodka, so will slide down to the bottom of the glass because it's heavier than the vodka. Layer two complete.

Now do the same with the grenadine. Pour down the side, down it will slide. The sugar content in the grenadine is higher than the vodka and schnapps, so it'll fall to the bottom and bump the other layers above it. Meow, darling. Layer three in place.

Ahhhhh, layered happiness.
