Binge – Liquid Sparkles

These lovely little recipes fell into my inbox recently from the healthy people at Zespri Kiwifruit. I read up a little about these fuzzy guys and found that one kiwifruit gives you twice as much Vitamin C as an orange; and it’s among the top nutrient dense fruits, meaning you get more good stuff per gram and per calorie than most other fruit (yes – don’t waste your daily calorie quota!) Other good things about kiwifruit – it’s got one of the highest concentrations of lutein in fruits making it good for eyesight and helps prevent age-related deterioration of eye-sight (that’s me – ye olde long sighted) and it’s also a good antioxidant. Best of all, you can mix it with alcohol and turn kiwifruit into these ‘healthy’ liquid sparklies. What a lovely way to take your vitamins! I share these goodies with you, yah? Chin chin!

Serves 2

1 ZESPRI® GOLD Kiwifruit, peeled and chopped
60 ml lychee syrup, from canned lychees
90ml vodka
120 ml ginger ale

Muddle ZESPRI® GOLD Kiwifruit, vodka, lychee syrup in cocktail shaker.
Add ice and ginger ale and shake. Strain into two ice-filled Collins glasses.
Garnish with ZESPRI® GOLD Kiwifruit and lychee if you like.

Note: For mocktail, substitute 3 ounces extra ginger ale for alcohol.

1 generous serving or 2 small ones

2 chilled ZESPRI® GREEN Kiwifruit, peeled and chopped
1 Tbsp lemon or lime juice
¼ cup light rum
1½ Tbsp caster sugar
2 cups crushed ice


Blend the ZESPRI® GREEN Kiwifruit until smooth but seeds are not broken up. Place in a small bowl and set aside.
Place the ice into the blender with the remaining ingredients and blitz until they have the consistency of snow.
Fold the ZESPRI® GREEN Kiwifruit into the icy mixture, pour into a chilled glass and serve.
