Happy Hour--Kiwi Margaritas

This time of year I start to get so excited about all of the fresh fruits and vegetables that are becoming available fresh at the grocery store.  I love, love, love tropical fruits and kiwis are one of my favorites.

Aren't these just beautiful?  I love the bright green of these cocktails.  They are tart and sweet.  My absolute favorite combination.  I used black sea salt to mimic the seeds of the kiwi for that special little touch (my husband totally made fun of me).  I didn't strain these margaritas because  I love all of the seeds but feel free to strain if that's your preference.
