How Sweet Eats

What we want to know? Why kiwi is so underused in cocktail recipes! It's pairs so well with so many flavors, which is why it's our latest obsession when it comes to fruit-flavored margaritas. Ever since Jessica of How Sweet Eats proposed the idea of a kiwi margarita last year, I've been more than onboard. As in, every time I see a kiwi, I want it in a margarita. This version of the kiwi margarita is a bit spicy and a Cadillac margarita, because that's how I do when it comes to margaritas!

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe peeled Sliced kiwi

    a few slices reserved for garnish

  • 1 jalapeño chile

    sliced paper thin

  • A few (3 to 5) fresh mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 ounces 100% agave silver tequila
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau or other orange liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce agave syrup or simple syrup
  • Crushed ice

Instructions

Save a few slices of the kiwi for garnish then put the rest in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. For one drink, combine 3 ounces of the kiwi puree with a few slices of jalapeno, a few leaves of mint, the tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and agave in a cocktail shaker. Fill halfway with ice then close and shake until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a glass filled with crushed ice and garnish with some kiwi.
