Kiwi Daiquiri

This recipe is from my article All About Kiwifruit. By switching the rum to tequila and adding a little Triple Sec this drink becomes a margarita.

  • 12 very ripe kiwifruit, peeled and diced
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 
1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 6 ounces rum
  • 
4 unpeeled kiwifruit slices for garnish

1) Put kiwifruit in a food processor with lime juice. Pulse only a few times until fruit is just pureed. Mix sugar and water and combine with puree, pulsing a few times until smooth.

2) Put kiwifruit mixture in a metal or glass pan and mix with a whisk or wooden spoon. Freeze until solid.

3) Scoop up frozen mixture and put into a food processor or blender. Add the rum and puree just until a slushy drink is formed. Pour into goblets. Make a slit halfway into the kiwifruit slices and put a slice on the rim of each glass.

Serves 4.
