Juicy Mix and Match Cocktail Recipe

Juicy Cocktail

This cocktail recipe allows you to mix and match a large variety of liqueurs and juices to make many different drinks all using the same recipe and base spirit.

Frequently, I have guests or family members who like juicy drinks. Those that aren’t dominated by the taste of any particular spirit and taste more like the mixer than alcohol. I’ll have to admit it, there are times when I like cocktails like this as well. The Juicy Cocktail uses Vodka (a fruit Vodka like Grey Goose La Poire works great, but regular Vodka works fine) combined with any sweet liqueur and any berry fruit juice (citrus juices won’t work well with the same recipe).

Juicy Cocktail Recipe

  • 2 oz Vodka (a fruit-flavored/infused Vodka ups the ante here – I used Grey Goose La Poire – Pear Vodka)
  • 1 oz Sweet Liqueur (see below)
  • 1 oz Berry Fruit Juice (see below – I like using the unsweetened variety, but the recipe works fine with sweetened juices too)
  • 1/2 oz Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
  • Matching fruit or lime to garnish

Add all ingredients to a shaker and shake over ice until chilled. Strain and serve in a cocktail glass.

Liqueur Juice
Drambuie Pomegranate Juice
Benedictine Blueberry Juice
 Allspice Dram  Cranberry Juice
 Cointreau Acai
 Chambord Grape
Creme de cassis Strawberry
Cherry Heering Any Mixed Berry
Triple Sec
Grand Marnier
Ginger Liqueur

 

 

 

Mix and match any from the Liqueur column and the Juice column. Keep in mind that neither column is a complete list, try others and report back.
