By

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.

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.

Vodka
Peach Schnapps
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.

The Essentials

Red Wine
brandy
Orange

dark rum

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.

The Essentials

Rum
Coco Lopez
Pineapple Juice

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.

Rhum
Grapefruit Cordial
