For this Friday evening’s cocktail hour, (ok, so it was more like 3 hours) some friends and I enjoyed some fresh fruity Sangria. I wanted to try something a little different from the traditional, you know, go bohemian with it, and decided on this passion fruit kiwi recipe. I was not able to find plain passion fruit juice, so I opted for apple, passion mango and pineapple juices. The oranges I found at the grocery store looked like little ruby grapefruits when I cut into them. They were sweet and delicious oranges though. I plan to get some more of them and make something, not sure what yet. Got any suggestions?
Friday and Saturday evenings I’m typically ready for a cocktail to help relax and to celebrate the week. I have recently been reaching for a glass of wine or a beer, but both of those lovely choices do not lend much room for creativity behind the metaphorical bar. I also thought it would be fun to start a regular section of the blog for cocktail recipes. Viola! Here is the first one, a colorful and fresh raspberry and key lime margarita!
With some trial and error (imagine the face you give when you suck on a lemon…opps) I think I have something that is not only delicious in its fully intoxicating version, but its mocktail version is a nice alternative for kids and non-drinkers too.
