Easter weekend has come and gone and still, our typically warm spring is nowhere to be found! At least the Robins have arrived so we there’s some guarantee that warmer weather is around the corner.
We were hoping to have our Easter meal, or at least cocktails out on the patio with a nice fire this year but the weather didn’t cooperate. But high winds and a nip in the air didn’t stop me from going ahead with a fun spring cocktail.
2 Large Whole Pineapples (peeled & juiced or you can use store bought pineapple juice – about 20 ounces)
15 ounces of Organic Pure Cranberry Juice
2 Limes (one for rim slices and one sliced for the cocktail mix)
15 ounces of Ciroc Vodka (more or less depending on how strong you like your cocktails)
Sparkling Apple Cider
Sea Salt & Sugar For Glass Rims
Make this cocktail mix the night before serving so the flavors have time to come together. Juice the pineapple and add the cranberry juice, lime slices, and vodka. Refrigerate over night. Rim the cocktail glasses with the sugar and sea salt mixture and a slice of lime. Fill the glass 3/4 full and top with a little sparkling apple cider.
Had to have a little taste test before the mix went into the fridge for the night.
