It’s not easy to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. Sweet and boozy temptations surround every person who wants an appetizing drink, but also feels the need for fruit and vitamins. But do you know what goes good with liquor? Fruit. So much so, in fact, that it’s not all that hard to find a cocktail that’ll taste good and give you the fruit you so desire. So sip and let your life be fruitful. Here are eight cocktails that’ll give you (almost) a full serving of fruit.
8 Cocktails That Are Almost a Full Serving of Fruit
Few things go together like sunshine, tea and peaches. Throw some vodka into the mix, though, and you’ve got a delicious cocktail with enough fruit to make you feel good about drinking it. The Peaches and Tea Punch has peach schnapps, Lipton’s Iced Tea, vodka, lemon and half a peach, making it taste just like a Snapple.
Lipton’s Iced Tea, to top
The OG fruit drink that’s as easy to make as it is to enjoy. All you need is wine, brandy and a bunch of chopped up fruit, and you have a party. Not to mention snacking on all that wine-soaked fruit is the most scrumptious way to get in your five servings of fruit for the day.
Peel some bananas, grab some rum and lime juice, drop everything into a blender and voilà, you have the most appealing Banana Daiquiri you’ve ever seen. It’s so tasty you’ll never guess that you’re also drinking up all the potassium-filled fruit you need for the day.
We’re all for innovative vessels to hold your drink, especially when that vessel is a fresh peach. In this case, the filling is a frozen Bellini made with peach, prosecco and vodka. Eating a brunch drink never tasted so good. It’ll leave you speechless.
Prosecco Ice Cubes
Who needs ice when you have frozen fruit on hand? This Strawberry Daiquiri twist is a (somewhat) healthy way to get your fill of sweet strawberries, banana and, yes, rum too. Each sip is like a tropical vacation mixed with a fruit smoothie.
Is the Piña Colada technically a healthy cocktail? No. But it does deliver on the fruit front. The six ounces of pineapple juice, plus the eatable pineapple garnish, are all you need to check off a serving of fruit.
Take a break from the red Sangria with this white Sangria version. The fruit list in this drink includes pineapple, grapefruit and grapes. It’s also delightfully balanced and better than your basic batch of vino.
While the Hot Toddy gets most of the credit for being able to cure a cold, the simple OJ and peach schnapps mix of the Fuzzy Navel has plenty of vital vitamin C.
