Frozen SunGold Kiwifruit Margarita with Grenadine

– Recipe courtesy of Chef Stephen Barry


  • 3 oz (1/3 cup) Tequila
  • 1 oz (3 tbsp) Cointreau, or other orange flavored liqueur
  • 6 oz (3/4 cup) fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 oz (1/4 cup) grenadine syrup
  • 2 Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit
  • sea salt (for the rim)
  • 1 lime wedge
  • ice Cubes
  • sliced SunGold Kiwifruit (for garnish)


  1. Place sea salt in a shallow saucer.
  2. Wet the rims of two margarita glasses with the lime wedge, and dip rims in the salt.
  3. Place the ice, tequila, Cointreau, grenadine and lime juice in a blender and blend well.
  4. Slice the Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit into halves and spoon the fruit into the blender.
  5. Blend just until combined. Be sure not to over blend, as crushed kiwifruit seeds can taste bitter.
  6. To serve, pour into prepared margarita glasses and garnish with gold kiwifruit slices.
