I have added some fruity recipes to make your own tropical cocktails for your next party, they are all made with a variety of fresh fruits and either vodka, tequila or rum.
-1/2 cup of smashed strawberries
-1 cup tequila
-2 cups crushed ice
-1/4 cup of sugar syrup
In the blender add the strawberries, a cup of tequila, the lime juice of the 2 limes and 1/4 cup of sugar syrup. Strain the liquid. Refrigerate for about 2 hours. Serve together with the crushed ice.
-1 1/2 (45 ml) white rum
-2 oz (30ml) of cream of coconut
-1 slice of pineapple
-1 cup crushed ice
Pour rum, cream of coconut and pineapple into a blender. Blend until smooth, refrigerate for about 2 hours. Serve together with the crushed ice
-2 chopped cucumbers
-6 cups of water
-1/3 cup fresh lime juice
-2/3 cup sugar
-1/2 cup of Tequila
In a blender add cucumbers and water and blend until smooth. Strain the liquid. Add the lime juice, sugar, and tequila. Refrigerate for about 2 hours. Serve together with the crushed ice.
-1/4 cup water
-1/4 sugar syrup
-8 cups diced watermelon
-1/4 cup fresh lime juice
-1 1/4 cups of vodka
-2 cups of crushed ice
In a blender, add the watermelon, the sugar syrup, the lime juice and the tequila. Strain the liquid to obtain only the liquid. Refrigerate for about 2 hours. Serve together with the crushed ice.
Once done you can pour the different fruit cocktails into transparent cups, I used some martini transparent plastic glasses as you can see on the pictures. Create your own decorations with fruits to add to the cups or even print some of them.
Finally you can also decorate the rims of the glasses with salt and sugar. Just mix a bit of sugar and salt in a small bowl, and pour onto a small, shallow plate. Moisten the rims of the glasses with the juice of a lime, and dip the moistened glass rims into the salt and sugar mixture.
For the fruit decorations, you can take some of the leaves of the pineapple used for the pina colada and a piece of fruit (watermelon, strawberry, pineapple or a slice of lemon) as seen on the picture and put them into a toothpick, you can also add some paper fruits toothpicks, umbrella toothpicks or custom made themed paper toppers, also used for cupcakes.
Let me know how was the result and if you enjoyed this fruit homemade cocktails!
