DIRECTIONS

Rim the edge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in a mix of coarse salt. Fill the glass with ice - crushed ice is always great for margys. In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, grand marnier, kiwi syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in lime slices and add a few kiwi berries or kiwi chunks.

Kiwi Simple Syrup

Add the kiwi fruit to a food processor and blend until pureed. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil, whisking until the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool. Once cool, add it to the food processor with the kiwi and blend until you have the kiwi syrup! This can be stored in the fridge, sealed well, for a week or so.  

This recipe can be easily doubled, quadrupled, etc. Since everyone's tastes differ, add simple syrup 1/4 cup at a time and go by your taste. I also suggest buying the lime juice if you plan on making a pitcher (or 2) considering you'd have to squeeze a billion lime to get enough juice.
