Kiwis are such a unique fruit. They are tart and sweet and paired with mint to make a super refreshing drink. I love the speckles of black seeds in this pretty drink.
1/2 cup sugar
fresh mint leaves
Start by making the kiwi puree. In a blender, place 3 1/2 kiwis peeled and halved, the sugar, lime juice and about 2 tbsp. fresh mint leaves. Blend on high until it is a smooth puree. If it is too thick add a little more lime juice.
Fill glasses with ice. Pour about 1/3 cup puree over the ice and then top off the glass with club soda. Give it a stir and then garnish with a slice from the half a kiwi that is left and a sprig of mint leaves. And if you are looking for a grown up version, no one is going to stop you from adding a little rum.
Puree can be made ahead and stored in the fridge up to 24 hours. Makes 6 generous drinks.
