Strawberry Kiwi Daiquiri


I had some Strawberries and Kiwis which were ripening quickly and needed to be used ASAP, so I decided to make a Cocktail. I will tell you that I have limited experience with anything other than Martini's, I am not a sweet drink person, so this was new to me!

I did not have any Rum which seems to be the usual liquor involved, so I used Vodka. It was delicious and somehow I felt healthy drinking it, I mean it does have fruit in it after all!

1 cup Strawberries
2 Kiwi's peeled
1 equal
Vodka (use however much you like)
Ice
1 tsp Fresh Lime or Lemon Juice

I used my immersion blender and simply whirred it all together and added the vodka into the individual glasses along with the fruit mixture. You could use a blender as well.

the strawberry-kiwi combination is one that always hits the right notes with me. this is a marvelous drink, although it's always dangerous to use vodka at my own discretion... :)
