Drink of the Moment: Kiwi Colada

Ok people, get ready to whet your whistles cause I've got another good one for you!  Unlike the last exceptionally popular drink of the moment that could still very easily have been thrown together twelve drinks in, this one actually does require a little prep work with a sharp utensil, so make sure you have things geared up ahead of time if you're planning on having a multiple batch kind of night ... eh hem, or day.  

I present for your consideration ...


Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
Calories: 143


Try prepping your kiwi in bulk.
  • peeled kiwifruit, divided     
  • 3 cups ice
  • 1/4 cup light rum
  • 1/4 cup Midori (melon-flavored liqueur)
  • 3 tablespoons Cream of Coconut (such as Coco Lopez)
  • (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained


  • Cut 4 kiwifruit into quarters, and place in a blender. Set remaining kiwifruit aside. Add ice and remaining ingredients to blender; process until smooth. Strain mixture through a sieve into a pitcher; discard seeds. Divide evenly among 6 glasses. Cut remaining kiwifruit into 6 slices; garnish each glass with 1 kiwifruit slice.
