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 limoncello splash is amazing!

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! Want a sweet snack to go with it, try these orange amaretto citrus bars!

  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, until the liquid is deeply red and the strawberry are soft.
