If you want a refreshing drink to relieve yourself from the summer heat, you can try a fresh fruit cocktail. Not only does it look cool and inviting, but it also tastes delicious. Pineapples, strawberries, citrus fruits, and other goodies make great accompaniments to the liquor.
In order to make the ultimate fruit cocktails, make sure that you wash the fruit first and keep it cold on a bed of ice. When it comes to the alcohol, go for quality. You might think that the flavor of the fruit and other ingredients would mask the taste of the low-quality liquor, but there is nothing like using quality, full-flavored spirits. Further, while making the cocktails, make sure to add alcohol to the glass before adding fruit juice. Keep a small supply of fresh lemons and limes around. A simple squeeze can totally liven up some concoctions.
Fresh fruit cocktails can be deceiving. The rich fruit flavors can make one forget about the alcohol content of the drinks. Remember that there is typically around a couple of ounces of alcohol in each glass. Therefore, go easy on the refills!
