Cocktail recipe: KI Spirits’ Passionate Pav

Get your pavlova fix at cocktail hour.

Arguments about its origin aside – there is something wonderfully celebratory and communal about the Great Australasian Pavlova.


Browse the KI Spirits range here.

It is a dessert dish about 98 per cent sugar, by our approximation, and a lively mixture of soft and plump fruits and more textural crackly shell.

When is set at the table at Christmas time, the first bite is explosive and moreish, and the last bite is only when your teeth communicate to your brain that crunched through a year’s worth of sugar.

Sometimes you will listen.

Even outside of its seasonal context, the appearance of a pavlova at a party will spark a note of enjoy inside all whose eyes gaze upon it.

This is the kind of joy we need at the moment. And what better time to enjoy it than at your next weekly cocktail hour.
