> Kiwi Mojito Cocktail
A fun and fresh cocktail to spice up your Thursday!
- 6 to 8 kiwis peeled and cut into halves or quarters
- Juice from 1-2 limes
- ~ ½ cup simple syrup or sugar adjust to taste
- 1 oz to ~1 ½ oz of rum per person adjust to taste
- 4 kiwis peeled and sliced
- 4 ounces of mint leaves
- ~2 cups sparkling water add more to taste – can also use sparkling lemonade (reduce the amount of sugar or simple syrup if using sparkling lemonade)
Place the peeled kiwi pieces in a blender or small food processor with the simple syrup/sugar and lime juice, pulse until you have coarse puree. If you want an extra minty flavor for the mojitos, then add some mint leaves into the blender.
If all the drinks will have alcohol, in a large pitcher, mix the kiwi puree with the rum, you can start by adding a lower amount and then adjust as you taste the final drink.
Next add some ice cubes, mint leaves, and kiwi slices to the crushed kiwi and rum mix.
Add the sparkling water or sparkling lemonade, stir gently and taste. Add more rum, sparkling water, lime juice, or simple syrup if desired. Top off with additional ice cubes and mint leaves.
To make the drinks in individual glasses, follow a similar process as for the pitcher, but add a couple of kiwi slices and mint leaves at the beginning.
To make the “add your alcohol to taste variation” follow the same steps without adding the rum, and let each person mix in the amount or type of rum/alcohol they desire.
Moisten the rims of the glasses with a slice of lime and garnish the rims with the regular sugar, a cocktail flavored rimming sugar, or cookie sugar sprinkles.
