Hey Friends! It’s party time with our blended kiwi margaritas ! We’re working hard over here with so many different recipes and we realized that we need to have more cocktail recipes. So one of the first things on our mind was margaritas and since we had a ton of ripe kiwi sitting on the counter, it was definitely time to work on a blended kiwi margarita recipe for you guys.

Use Ripe Kiwis for Margaritas

Best suggestion we can give you to make this margarita recipe awesome is to use really ripe kiwis. The riper the kiwis, the better and sweeter the flavor. We’ll usually wait to let them become super soft and then we know they’ll be ready for the margaritas. Serve them at your party and you’ll be the hit of the party.

Tip for Kiwi Margaritas: Can you double this recipe?

  • Yes, this recipe easily doubles. The video above is proof. That was a double batch being made of the kiwi margaritas because it was a Friday and everyone wanted their fair share to taste.
  • Orange liqueur or Orange Bitters? Our tasters were split on how they liked it. Some preferred the kiwi margaritas with orange liqueur others liked it with simple syrup and orange bitters. There are both options in the recipe below. Just check the head note if you want to try the orange bitters version.
  • Like we mentioned above, use ripe kiwis. Firm kiwis are more sour and the sugars haven’t developed to give the delicious flavor of true kiwi. So plan ahead and let the kiwi fruit ripen on your counter for a few days. When they’re soft, that means that they’re sweet and flavorful.
  • If you like your margaritas a little brighter, add a little more fresh lime juice.
  • Make it spicy! Add a few slices of jalapenos in the drink for a delicious jalapeno margarita.

Blended Kiwi Margaritas

The riper the kiwis, the better tasting this margarita will be. We'll let the kiwis ripen until they're super soft and sweeter.
This recipe easily doubles for big parties! You can also substitute the orange liqueur and sugar with a 1/3 cup (60ml) of simple syrup and several hearty dashes of orange bitters if you prefer.
The ice amount will vary depending on how big your ice cubes are. It is best to start with less ice and add more to reach your desired consistency.
