Best Cocktails to Make with A Fruit Liqueur

Some fantastic cocktails made from fruit liqueur include:

Pina Colada – The classic Pina Colada recipe calls for cream of coconut to give it its signature thick texture. A pineapple infused liqueur and rum combined with this rich creamy ingredient makes it even better than ever before. You still get all the sweetness but now there’s a subtle hint of something special as well. This drink works perfectly when served right after shaking because then the ingredients will not separate too much which allows every sip to have smoothness.
Cranberry Screw Driver – Fill a glass with ice cubes, pour in orange juice until it is about an inch from the top of your glass, add vodka and finally cranberry liqueur. Stir well before drinking because certain ingredients will separate over time so stir to blend them together again.
Cosmopolitan – Pour all ingredients including cranberry liqueur, into a shaker filled with ice, then shake vigorously for 30 seconds or longer depending on how strong you want this drink to be. Strain cocktail through strainer into martini glasses that have been trimmed by dipping each edge along the outside of a small shallow dish containing lime juice and sugar (optional). Serve immediately after preparing since the beverage does not keep well.
Mango Margarita – In a blender container combine margarita mix, tequila, watermelon liqueur, orange-pineapple juice concentrate, honeydew melon balls and crushed ice. Cover, and blend on high speed for about 30 seconds.
Blueberry Basil Smash – It is made with blueberries, basil leaves, liqueur and lemonade.
Blueberry Mimosa – This cocktail consists of champagne, sugar syrup, vodka, lime juice or orange juice, and blueberry liqueur. The final cocktail includes gin along with watermelon puree that has been mixed in simple syrup then topped off to taste by club soda or sparkling wine before adding a few ice cubes, if desired, to serve it chilled as well as garnishing each glass using thin round slices from lime wedges.
Raspberry Shake – This is made with raspberry liqueur, milk, vodka and vanilla ice cream.
Strawberry Daiquiri – This consists of strawberries or strawberry liqueur, lime juice or orange juice, along with white rum, then blended briefly in a blender or crushed using a mortar and pestle until it becomes smooth before adding sugar syrup to taste as well as serving over shaved ice if desired. Variations of this cocktail include using strawberry purée.
Pineapple Pina Colada – The Pina Colada is easily made using pineapple liqueur and other ingredients such fresh pineapple juice, coconut cream or coconut milk along together with good quality rum.
Tequila Sunrise – This delicious cocktail is made with orange juice, tequila, grenadine syrup and passionfruit liqueur to add some zest to it.
White Lady – This is made from gin paired with Cointreau and fresh lemon juice then shaken together before serving on crushed ice if desired.
Many cocktails normally made using spirits such as gin, vodka and other liquor, but can easily be infused with fruity tropical liqueurs that enhance the flavors in a unique way. Since fruit liqueurs are sweet and fruit tasting, you don’t need to add many extra ingredients to it as well. Cocktails made with fruit liqueurs are fun to experiment and create with, especially when the weather is too hot for regular cocktails, and you need something simple and easy which will help you wind down after a hard day of working.

Making some delicious fruit liqueur cocktails are also a great beverage for get together and when you have small partiers of friend or family over, perhaps a nice summer poolside party or bar-be-que. Some fruit liqueurs can also be made at home if you have a lot of patience and time, since they need a few weeks to ferment and preserve, but you will be able to dazzle your friend and family with your own home-made fruit liqueurs. It is also much cheaper to make these liqueurs at home rather than buying expensive bottles from the market to make your favourite cocktails.
