Mother’s Day is all about mom and celebrating her in every way possible. This Mother’s Day, celebrate the occasion with a stunning margarita that is just as sweet as mom.
My mami loves kiwi’s – over her breakfast oatmeal, whizzed into an agua fresca or eaten icy cold with a spoon. She requests them whenever I call to ask what she needs from the grocery store.
I’ve kept this margarita recipe super simple since I don’t want anything to overpower that delicious kiwi flavor. A touch of sugar, plenty of fresh lime juice, a few pulses in the food processor and you are ready to add to a pitcher. Feel free to strain before adding to the pitcher, but I personally love ALL the seeds. Yum.
I’m whipping up these margaritas in a pitcher for ease, plus they can go from fridge to table, after all on Mother’s Day there should be absolutely no heavy-lifting.
This vibrant, fruity and delicious margarita is the perfect treat to accompany brunch festivities, or any flowers or chocolates you plan to gift mom on her special day.
