Three Fruity Cocktails to Get your Friday Started

I’m not sure whether this year is going fast because I’m getting old or because I have my wedding coming up. Best not think about it.

This fridays drinks (unless you’re going to do this on a Thursday night) main ingredient will be Fresh As freeze dried powders. This gives you a quick and easy way of getting Fresh As fruit into your drinks with minimum fuss. I’m sure they’re probably meant to be put in muffins or something as well, but I prefer to take my fruits garnished with alcohol.

In addition to tried-and-true tipplers like vodka and soda or gin and tonic, there are loads of cocktails featuring Fresh As freeze dried powders and fruits that will liven up your happy hour. And for those expecting or abstaining, these fruit-based summer coolers are equally as refreshing without an added spike of alcohol. The three we have today are sugar laden and make use of raspberry, passionfruit and plums.
