Replace ice with frozen fruit for a light (but not sweet!) summer cocktail with a trace of fruity flavor.
I struggled over a name for this because “pineapple” and “fruit” make this sound like a tropical punch, which it most certainly is not. Since this is so incredibly simple and unfussy, plus I have a love for alliteration, I went with “unfussy fizzy mandarin.”
Use that frozen fruit you have lingering in the fridge for smoothies, and toss a few of your favorites (mine are pineapple and mango!) into a glass with sparkling water and add a shot of Absolut Mandarin for a refreshingly sippable cocktail with a whisper of fruit.
- Frozen Pineapple and/or Mango
- Absolut Mandarin – 1 ounce (or a shot)
- Fill the glass with sparkling water
This would make the perfect summer soiree cocktail – pretty, simple, and easy to drink.
