3 Fruity Cocktail Recipes for Spring Entertaining

Spring is finally "in the air" and I'm ready to get back outside and into the fresh air. During the spring season we like to do a lot of entertaining around Easter, Mother's Day and of course...the various birthdays and weddings that are happening throughout the season. I'm always looking for delicious cocktail recipes that are super easy-to-make and made with ingredients that I can readily find.

The three cocktail recipes that I'm featuring today are courtesy of Sparkling ICE and Coco Joy. All three of them look absolutely delicious and I can't wait to try them.

Blueberry Pomegranate Cocktail Recipe

4 oz. Blueberry Pomegranate SPARKLING ICE
2 oz. Pomegranate Juice
Pomegranate Seeds
Add a splash of vodka or prosecco for a cocktail modification

Fill a glass with Blueberry Pomegranate SPARKLING ICE. Add pomegranate juice. Top with 5-6 blueberries and a small handful of pomegranate seeds. Stir to combine. Serve immediately.

Apple Cranberry Cocktail Recipe

4 cups apple cider, chilled
2 cups cranberry juice cocktail, chilled
2 cups SPARKLING ICE Crisp Apple, chilled
1 can (12oz.) frozen orange juice concentrate
Apple slices for garnish
Rosemary cranberry sprig for individual garnish, as shown in image, or float fresh or frozen cranberries in punch bowl.

Add a splash of vodka or prosecco for a cocktail modification.

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients and let sit overnight. Serve chilled, garnish with rosemary cranberry sprig.

Pina Colada Cocktail Recipe

½ crushed pineapple
1 cup crushed ice
1 cup vodka
2 cups cold Coco Joy Water

I love Sparkling Ice and I love fruit, so all 3 cocktails are great, but especially the Apple Cranberry one. I could have that at any time of the day.
