What Are Some Mixed Drink Recipes Using Kiwi?


Martinis, margaritas, daiquiris and vodka Collins cocktails are mixed drinks that are sometimes made with kiwis. For the martini, begin by muddling one-half of a skinned kiwi with 1/2 teaspoon simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add 3 ounces of plain or citrus vodka and ice.

Shake the liquid well and strain it into a chilled martini glass. Garnished with a slice of kiwi. To make two kiwi daiquiris, put one pared and sliced kiwi, 2 to 3 teaspoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 to 2 ounces of rum and eight crushed ice cubes into a blender. Add one drop of green food coloring if desired. Blend until the liquid is smooth. Pour it into stemmed glasses that are garnished with kiwi slices. Omit the rum for a nonalcoholic version.

For two kiwi margaritas, put 1 1/2 peeled and sliced kiwis, 1/2 ounce melon liquor, one splash each of Triple Sec and lime juice, 1 ounce of tequila and eight crushed ice cubes into a blender. After the mixture is fully blended, tip it into two kiwi-garnished pieces of stemware.

Make a kiwi Collins by scooping out the pulp from one-half of a kiwi. Place it into a cocktail shaker and muddle it. Add two shots of vodka, 1/2 shot of sugar syrup, and 1 1/2 shots of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Shake with ice, then strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Add a splash of soda water and garnish with kiwi.
