Ingredients

  • 11 ounces peeled and sliced fresh kiwi
  • 11 ounces peeled and sliced mango
  • 11 ounces hulled fresh strawberries
  • 4 to 6 cups ice divided
  • 1 1/4 pounds Granulated sugar
  • 16 ounces water
  • 4 lemons 3 for juicing and 1 for garnish
  • 4 limes 3 for juicing and 1 for garnish
  • 4 oranges 3 for juicing and 1 for garnish
  • Cuervo Gold Tequila to taste
  • Dekuyper Cactus Juice Schnapps chilled, to taste

Instructions

For the rims:

  • Line each glass with salt if desired. I put out two plates, one filled shallowly with water, the other with salt. I dunked each glass in the water, then quickly into the salt. Set aside till needed.

For the Simple Syrup:

  • In a medium saucepan mix 1 ¼ lb. sugar with 16 oz. of water, cook while stirring occasionally over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Refrigerate. This will last for 24 hours.

For the Margarita Mix:

  • Cut limes, oranges and lemons in half. Squeeze juice from 3 limes, 3 oranges, and 3 lemons into a quart container and add 1/2 of your simple syrup to it. Pop this in the fridge. This will last for 24 hours.

For the Fruit Ices:

  • Blend each fruit separately with ice (I used about 1 1/2 cups of ice per fruit, but you can adjust this to your own taste) and 2 ounces of cooled simple syrup until thick. Store each fruit flavour separately in bowls. These three mixes will last for 2-3 hours in fridge. If making quickly you can pop them in the freezer for about 30 minutes maximum.
  • Putting it all together:
  • Blend the Margarita mix, tequila, and some ice in a good blender until thick.
  • Now scoop about two teaspoons of each ice in the bottom of your chilled Martini glass. I like extra strawberry in mine so I use that as the base then use all three fruits randomly on top.
  • Now top the fruit ices with the thick margarita mix.
  • You can now add a shot of Cactus Juice into the drink. If you can't find it or want to keep this light substitute sprite.
  • Place lime,orange and lemon wedges on the rim for garnish.
  • Serve with a big old bahamarita smile!
