Earth Day was on Monday, which would technically make me a day late and a dollar short for an Earth Day cocktail. Except, I have decided to declare this to be Earth WEEK – I like to pretend I have that kind of power – indulge me, won’t you? So before we get started, I ask that you all look around the area where you live this week and find some way to help our earth; whether it’s picking up some litter, starting a compost pile, planting some flowers, etc. We need to nurture nature!
Now I present to you all the Fruits of the Earth Cocktail.
1.5 ounces of cherry juice
1.5 ounces of pineapple juice
1.5 ounces of orange juice
1.5 ounces of cranberry juice
1 -2 shots of vodka or rum (to taste)
Maraschino cherries for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with chopped ice and pour in all liquid ingredients. Shake well and without straining, pour into 2 lowball glasses. Garnish with cherries. This is the perfect way to reward yourself for your hard work during Earth Week. Cheers!
