Kate Hudson is looking back with nostalgia at her Greek holidays on the island of Skiathos back in June as she uploaded her favorite cocktail on her Instagram page.
The cocktail prepared by bartender and “friend Yiorgos,” was given the apt name “With love from Greece.”
“My friend Yiorgo made a cocktail that blew my mind!” she wrote. “He made a syrup that took 48 hrs with spices and things and it had strawberry juice and well…I have no idea but I’m gonna find out.”
Ingredients for Greek cocktail
It emerged that Yiorgos used the following recipe:
50ml King St. Vodka
25ml homemade falernum syrup
25 ml fresh lime juice
75 ml strawberry puree
40 ml fruit puree
Hudson and her family frequent the island, having vacationed on Skiathos almost every summer in recent memory.
The actress was not alone on her vacation, and was joined by her immediate family. Her partner Danny Fujikawa and her children, Rani Rose (two years old) and Bingham (nine years old), had joined her on the picturesque vacation.
Hudson is not alone in frequenting Greece as a vacation spot — it was very likely her mother who inspired her love of the country! Goldie Hawn, Hudson’s very famous mother, and the former’s partner Kurt Russell actually own a vacation home on the island. The entire family often visits and stays in the house, making their love of Greece a “family affair”.
Kate Hudson’s perfect day is in Greece
In 2018, Kate Hudson spoke to Harper’s Bazaar and outlined that her “perfect day” would be in Greece, and that the country is her “happy place”.
Her “perfect day” starts with an early morning wake up on an island in Greece to the sound of her kids running around. She goes on to explain that since she is an early riser, she would wake up and open the door at 7:30 AM and it will already be warm outside. She continues by going to buy a double espresso and then walks down to the sea for a swim, while her sons run around on the beach.
An hour later at around 8:30 AM, they head back to the house they stay in, “one of those adorable little Greek houses with whitewashed walls and blue shutters.”
Around 11 AM Hudson tells Harper’s Bazaar that her perfect day would continue by going on a hike with her partner. After that, she would do a Pilates workout, followed by light weights.
Around 12:30 PM Hudson says she would shower and get dressed. Her vacation wardrobe includes bikinis, high-waisted shorts, scarves that you can tie in a million different ways, and flip-flops. The day may continue by boarding a small dinghy-type boat and going to another island for lunch or fried zucchini and moussaka at a seaside taverna.
After lunch, the kids will play on the beach, while she sits and suntans.
“Greece is my favorite vacation spot; I feel really at home there. I love the culture, the people are wonderful, and the water is just so incredibly appealing,” says Hudson.
