Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


Vodka (1.5 oz) is the backbone of this cocktail, offering a neutral canvas to let the fruity flavors shine. Without it, you'd have a pretty but punchless mocktail. Too much and your kitty may start to roar louder than you'd fancy.

Peach Schnapps

Peach Schnapps (1 oz) is like the friendly neighbor who always has the best fruit tree. It sweetens the deal and gives that peachy keen vibe. Lose this, and your cocktail might end up being a bit tart.

Alex Green

Cranberry Juice

Cranberry Juice (2 oz) adds a tart contrast that keeps things real in this land of sweetness, giving your cocktail a blushing color. Drop the cranberry and you lose some zing and the rosy hue.

Pineapple Juice

Pineapple Juice (2 oz) is the life of the party—tropical and bubbly. It brings the sunny island beat that gets along with almost every other ingredient. Skip it and you’ll miss that vacation vibe.

Mary Mitkina


Grenadine (0.5 oz) is like the finishing touch of lipstick on the Hello Kitty—just a dash brightens up the entire drink. Leaving it out is like Hello Kitty without her bow... quite not the same.

Alex Green

Maraschino Cherry

Maraschino Cherry is that one guest that makes everything a bit more fancy and fun, plus a dash of sweet nostalgia. A cocktail without the cherry is like a party without music—still good, but missing that cherry on top.

Orange Slice

The Orange Slice garnish smiles up at you like your best pal, offering a hint of citrus aroma and making the whole ensemble Insta-worthy. It’s not just decoration; it adds a citrus kick when squeezed into the drink.

In case you forgot basics how to make Hello Kitty

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
