It's cocktail time!
One of my favorite cocktails is a Madras. The combination of cranberry and orange juice with vodka makes a wonderful fruity drink. Sipping this makes me feel like I'm on a tropical island with my toes in the sand and a breeze in my hair. Heaven!
So we were hosting a holiday dinner with some friends last month and I decided to make a variation of this drink. I combined 3 fruit juices, and to make this an adult punch we topped it with some Prosecco.
This was the perfect cocktail. Of course I would also say that this would be the perfect blend of fruit juices to sip on a hot day without the alcohol as well! And to make it kid friendly for a party or holiday mocktail, you can top it with sparkling apple cider, or a little sparkling water.
Just look at this color. It looks like a sunset.
It tastes like a dream. Dreaming of a vacation on a tropical island!
2 cups of orange juice
2 cups of cranberry juice
2 6oz cans of pineapple juice
1 bottle of Prosecco (substitute sparkling apple cider or sparkling water)
Add the juices to a pitcher, stir to combine. Serve over ice filling the glass 2/3 full. Top with Prosecco.
