Kiwi Colada

Here's a fun twist on the classic summertime umbrella drink. Kiwifruit and melon liqueur give the cocktail a green hue and slightly tangy flavor. Although we used green kiwi, you can substitute the golden variety for a sweeter taste and golden color.

6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)

* 5 peeled kiwifruit, divided
* 3 cups ice
* 1/4 cup light rum
* 1/4 cup Midori (melon-flavored liqueur)
* 3 tablespoons Cream of Coconut (such as Coco Lopez)
* 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained

Cut 4 kiwifruit into quarters, and place in a blender. Set remaining kiwifruit aside. Add ice and remaining ingredients to blender; process until smooth. Strain mixture through a sieve into a pitcher; discard seeds. Divide evenly among 6 glasses. Cut remaining kiwifruit into 6 slices; garnish each glass with 1 kiwifruit slice.
