Mix together 10 ounces of pureed kiwi with rum, lime juice, water and sugar in a shallow freezer safe dish.
Let mixture sit at room temperature for one hour to melt sugar.
Stir kiwi mixture and cover tightly and freeze overnight.
When ready to serve, fluff cocktail with a fork and spoon it into four glasses. It will have the consistency of a granita, but will quickly melt into a slushy drink.
Garnish with kiwi slices and serve immediately! Cheers!
It's really important to puree fresh, not frozen kiwi. I learned the hard way that if you blend frozen kiwi, the seeds will get blended turning the drink brown and ugly! That being said, you cannot puree the fresh kiwi too aggressively. Gently pulse the blender until the kiwi so the seeds stay intact.
You'll need about 5-7 kiwi for this recipe plusmore for garnish.
Don't skip the water! Kiwi is sugary and slimy and doesn't freeze well by itself. The water and lime juice are the parts that create the ice crystals.
