Drinks make can make any party or gathering a hit. People usually look forward to seeing the drinks offerings before, during and after the meal. They serve as a social ice-breaker and add an attractive visual touch. We have three party drinks recipes that are sure to impress friends and family.
Three Party Drinks Recipes
1- Berry Lemonade
16 oz. Grey Goose Le Citron 16
32 oz. lemonade
1 c. sugar
Garnish: lemon slices and raspberries
Muddle raspberries and sugar in a punch bowl or pitcher. Add remaining ingredients and stir gently. Garnish with lemon slices and raspberries. (source)
2- The Original Hurricane
2 oz dark rum
1 oz passion fruit syrup
1 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker over ice. Shake and strain into an ice-filled glass. (The original recipe calls for crushed ice, but I prefer this with cubed, since the drink doesn’t get diluted as quickly.) Garnish with an orange slice and cherry. (source)
3- Passion Fruit Caipirinha
4 tablespoons golden caster sugar
75 ml cachaça
1 ripe passion fruit
Cut the limes into wedges.
Place all but two of the lime wedges and the sugar in a cocktail shaker and muddle for a couple of minutes, or until the sugar has almost dissolved. Add the cachaça, then halve and spoon in most of the passion fruit pulp. Fill the shaker with crushed ice and shake it vigorously for 1 minute. Pour the cocktail into two glasses and top up with more ice, if need be. Garnish with lime wedges and the rest of the passion fruit pulp. (source)
Enjoy your mixing and party on!
