Oh how ZWT lead us - or me at any rate - astray! I NEVER usually make something like this: for the most part I'm a strictly wine, water and coffee drinker. I was seduced by some photographs of this - and was SO pleased with how just how fabulously flavoursome it was! :) I made it exactly to the recipe, except for omitting the food colouring and using less ice. Made for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT 5.
This was a very nice drink. After reading other reviews, I decided to add more sugar and it came out just right for DH and I. Thank you for posting! Made for Dining Daredevils and ZWT 5.
I've made this delicious drink for the 2nd time. I realized that the 1st time I misunderstood the directions and didn't include the 1st sliced kiwi in the drink. The kiwi makes a big difference in the flavour of the drink (no kidding, eh?). This was again prepared with 2 oz of rum for 2 drinks and without the food colouring. Made for ZWT5
