Kiwi Margarita

Kiwi Margarita

Prep time: 10 minutes

It’s that fruity, yummy drink time of year. And especially so today because its Cinco de Mayo. In celebration, I have a delicious kiwi margarita recipe for you. I’ve turned this well known super-food into a super-drink, and I know you’re going to love it. It’s got the sweetness of a traditional margarita, with a much more balanced sour flavor.

This simple recipe requires sour mix. If this isn’t something you have on hand, you make it in under ten minutes. The recipe makes two drinks; perfect for socializing on the porch!

Margarita Ingredients

2 ounces Sour mix
1 ounce orange liquor (such as
Cointreau or Triple Sec)
2 ounces tequila
2 Kiwis, peeled

Sour Mix Ingredients & Directions

Equal parts water, sugar, lime juice, and lemon juice.

Mix water and sugar together, and boil until sugar is dissolved. Mix with lemon and lime juice.

Directions

1. Puree the kiwi in a blender or food processor., until it forms a thick, liquid.

2. Place 3-4 ice cubs in a shaker, along with the tequila, orange liquor, sour mix, and kiwi mixture. Shake until thorough mixed.

3. Pour into glass! Because it’s a thicker mixture, it comes out of the shaker more slowly than other mixed drinks. Once I had shaken most of the margarita out, I removed the top of the shaker and used my hands to cover the cup while I poured out the remaining liquid into the glass.

Enjoy – and keep in mind this eclectic, delicious drink is a great option throughout the spring and summer. Hungry for more great recipes? Explore more Lawyer in the Kitchen!
