Kiwifruit has a natural affinity to lemon and lime. You can control the sweetness of this refreshing drink by adjusting the amount of lime and simple syrup. Kiwi limeade makes a good cocktail base for tequilla or rum, as well.To make simple syrup, combine equal parts of water and sugar, bring to a boil, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Store the syrup in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
