Kiwi Cocktails
























Kiwi Colada

  • YIELD: 6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
Ingredients
  • 5 peeled kiwifruit, divided (try using golden kiwifruit instead for a sweeter taste and pretty golden color)

  • 1/4 cup light rum
  • 1/4 cup Midori (melon-flavored liqueur)
  • 3 tablespoons Cream of Coconut (such as Coco Lopez)
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
Directions
  • Cut 4 kiwifruit into quarters, and place in a blender. Set remaining kiwifruit aside. Add ice and remaining ingredients to blender; process until smooth. Strain mixture through a sieve into a pitcher; discard seeds. Divide evenly among 6 glasses. Cut remaining kiwifruit into 6 slices; garnish each glass with 1 kiwifruit slice.
