Kiwi-tini - get your vitamin C with your cocktail!

I know, even though you are a bit of a lush, you want to make sure that you are getting all your vitamins and minerals. No fear, you can go ahead and include them in you liquid diet by means of your blender.

The kiwi fruit is low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Potassium and Copper, and a very good source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K. (source - NutritionData.com)

Well heavens! That sounds perfectly healthy and delicious. Kiwis are naturally sweet and lend themselves well to blender cocktails. It IS easy being green, when you have a big basket of kiwis that all happen to have ripened at the same time.

makes 2 cocktails

4 kiwis, peeled (plus one for garnish)
3 oz vodka
1 oz sour lemon liqueur
1 tbsp superfine sugar
1 cup ice

Blitz all the ingredients in a blender until you have a nice, thick concoction with icy bits floating freely in it. Pour into two cocktail glasses of your choice and garnish with a wheel of kiwi.
Crunch happily on little tiny kiwi seeds as you feel yourself getting healthier already. ♥
