We love good kiwi margaritas. It’s not just one, but two. The sweet, juicy, and amazing flavors of muddled kiwi lend perfectly to a margarita version.

Grab a few kiwis, and let them ripen for at least a few days on the counter. They are often hard and still tart. A few days of counter ripening will prepare you for the wonderful kiwi margarita cocktails to come.
