Amaretto Summer Citrus Berry Splash Cocktail


Nothing says summer quite like fresh strawberries!  We can't get enough of them and it is only May.  Chad has been working on some summer cocktails for our upcoming get-togethers this season.  Light and fresh cocktails are always a hit.  An adult beverage with just a touch of spirits is perfect for a family barbecue.

This Amaretto Summer Citrus Berry Splash Cocktail is light and refreshing but bursting with flavor.  The sweet strawberries combine with the tart lemon and bright orange juice to create a lovely foundation for this summer treat.  The amaretto melds perfectly with this drink, brightening the citrus and berry flavors.  You certainly don't taste any alcohol in this one, but watch those cocktails...  It is the ones that go down smooth that really sneak up on you!

This cocktail is perfect for your adult summer party.  We will certainly be serving it up this season. Kick off your heels and pour yourself one tonight!
