Kiwi Fresh Cocktail Recipe

How did I come up with this Kiwi Fresh Cocktail you ask?  Here is the little story, Jim and I just recently returned from a trip to Scottsdale Arizona.  While we were there we had breakfast at a delightful little bistro that served the most unbelievable fruit tray.  It had all the usual suspects, melon, berries, grapes but it also had Passion fruit, Dragon fruit and Kiwi.  I thought hmm a passion fruit cocktail sounds yummy.  Because don’t we all eat our breakfast and think about Saturday cocktails? No?  Well, anyway sadly there were no passion fruits available here in lovely Cincinnati, so I grabbed some kiwi’s tossed in some fruit, vanilla and tequila and made this delicious Kiwi Fresh Cocktail.

Holy moly, this sounds perfect! Fresh mint with kiwi sound like a great combo. The tequila is a bonus. :-) I’m saving this one for sooner rather than later.

Love the sound of this. Hubby loves tequila so he always has plenty of choices on hand!
