9 Excuses To Drink Your Cocktails Out Of Fruit (Recipes)
Want an easy way to impress your guests?
Let's have a little fun. Forget avocado lattes (seriously, forget them, please!), it's all about cocktails served inside actual fruit. Does it get any more enjoyable?
1. Tiger Shark Inside a Pineapple Goblet
Here's an easy way to turn a pineapple into the most fun cup ever. You can absolutely fill this with whatever tropical drink you like -- it would be great with a pina colada or Blue Hawaiian, for example -- but if you want something strong, tasty and simple, I highly recommend this three-rum concoction.
2. Luau Coconut
Are coconuts technically fruit? It's complicated, but WHO FREAKING CARES. This strong and super coconutty drink that gets just a dash of fruit to keep things tasty is about as luxurious as it gets.
3. Tropical Pineapple Coconut Sangria
This is the best way to celebrate National Wine Day on May 25! Serve it in a pineapple goblet (#1) or a coconut (#2) and enjoy!
4. Watermelon Keg
You can also get a smaller melon and turn it into a fishbowl to share, if you'd prefer. Fill it up with spiked watermelon punch for a tropical, fruity coconut mix that is deceptively strong.
5. Cantaloupe Juice
This drink is sweet, refreshing and a little bit creamy, just like the real fruit. Delicious!
6. The Botanist
This savory springtime cocktail technically gets served inside of a vegetable, but I'm pretty sure you'll forgive me when you realize how bright and refreshing it is.
7. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shot Glasses
You can do so much better than your average run-of-the-mill Jell-O shots. Take this classy and classic dessert and turn it into a sophisticated version of the infamous party drink, and you'll never look back.
8. Apple Cider Cups
If you long for fall or miss the coziness of winter, consider serving up some apple cider or mulled wine inside an actual apple garnished with some whole spices. This apple vessel is absolutely perfect with this Spiked Salted Caramel Apple Cider recipe.
9. Cucumber Gimlet Shots
An adorable and naughty way to get your daily dose of veggies!
