Silver tequila is the key here….don’t even try gold. You’ve spent a lot of money on the kiwi and all that wrist time squeezing the limes. Don’t be stingy with the booze.
2 kiwi, peeled and pureed or smashed with a fork
2-3 cups ice
4 limes, juiced (enough to yield 4 ounces of juice)
4 ounces silver tequila
1 ounce simple syrup
Flake sea salt for garnish
Run the cut side of a lime around the rim of two 8-ounce glasses and dip each rim into the flake sea salt. Fill a large cocktail shaker with ice. Add the citrus juice, tequila, simple syrup and kiwi puree to the shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into the two glasses and garnish with a sprinkle of salt on top of each drink.
