Cocktail Hour with Fruit Purees

Posted by

After a pretty brutal winter here in the northeast, the weather is finally starting to heat up. This means that it's grilling season and the perfect time to start serving delicious fruity cocktails. For today's Cocktail Hour, Allen brought us four fruity cocktails, each made with a different type of fruit puree. Allen uses fruit purees from The Perfect Puree of Napa Valley but you can easily make your own fruit purees by following the instructions provided here. Sip these poolside, on a picnic blanket, or on the beach-- whatever the setting, they'll be the perfect complement to any summer gathering. Cheers!
