Kiwi Margarita

The weather isn’t great yet…. So just thought why not prepare a refreshing kiwi margarita. It was just one kiwi in my refrigerator and one person at home, so thought let me treat myself tonight with this super kiwi smash cocktail with yummy dinner- Pink sauce pasta and yes it was the best treatment for myself after a long time. It was super sweet, juicy, and perfectly muddled kiwi flavors were just amazing.

The most questions asked are that when we make a cocktail out of these exotic fruits, just not gives exact flavors and is not fuzzy and just becomes like a simple syrup cocktail, but no this was super amazing and fuzzy. Had a lot of natural smell and flavor of the kiwi because sometimes, we usually add the juice of particular fruit instead of adding the muddled fruit or small piece of fruits. Also, the other day, having a conversation with my mom I thought why not make kiwi frozen so we can use it anytime like the way we store berries. It becomes so quick to prepare some cocktails and mocktails or some juices instantly. Do you just having the kiwi seeds with muddled kiwi margarita???? Honestly, I just love it but if u hate it when it comes to your mouth, would suggest you just use the kiwi juice instead of fresh kiwi.
