It’s Summer All Year Round With These 23 Fabulous, Fruity Cocktails!

In today’s guide to fruit cocktails, we welcome you to our list of 23 excellent choices for when you need a few (or 23!) new recipes for fruity cocktails!

Next time you want to feel like you are escaping life at a top notch resort far away from the worries or stressors of life, we suggest that in addition to putting on some relaxing music, some fruity mixed drinks will certainly add to that ambiance! 

No matter whether you are making them for some self-care time or to impress your friends at your winter luau, fruity drinks always seem to taste like a vacation in the Caribbean! 

The careful combination of fruit and alcohol is quite refreshing year round, but especially in the summertime. 

Each season has its own fresh fruits so that can guide your selection, though most can now be found year round. 

Some folks do not like the hard edge that comes with alcohol, so the addition of fruit makes it delicious and easy to enjoy. 

Maybe you just want something a bit unique or simply looking to add some variety in your rotation. 

Like the zesty Pink Grapefruit Martini or the classic cranberry delight Cape Cod, a fall flavorful Apple Cider Cocktail or the fruity plus-one of the Blackberry Moscow Mule!

And it doesn’t get more refreshing than the flavor combo in #21… 🍹🍹🍹

The fruity cocktail recipes found in this list are not only delicious but also simple to assemble. 

Cheers!

What do you get when you mix together citrus flavored vodka, 100% cranberry juice, fresh lime juice and sparkling water?  

A bubbly, red, delicious sparkling vodka cranberry cocktail! 

Add a few sugared cranberries on top of these fruity bar drinks if it is holiday time, and you are all set!

There might be a hundred fruity cocktail recipes that are versions of a martini. 

This one is the Mexican one with tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and olive juice. 

Yes, it’s a delightful mix of sweet and savory, a bit of sour with a bit of zing!

It has elements of a martini crossed with elements of a margarita for a stunning taste!

Fruity alcoholic drinks don’t always need the fruit to be freshly squeezed. 

Sometimes, store bought juice works perfectly fine as it does for the grapefruit juice part in this grapefruit martini recipe.

It calls for grapefruit juice, vodka, orange liqueur, but then specifically fresh lime juice.  

Read carefully before starting to get spectacular results!

Feeling a little more on the exotic side of things on your fruity cocktails search? 

Let me introduce you to the lychee martini. 

If using fresh lychee, be sure they are a ripe pink or red, remove the skin and separate the meat from the seed inside. 

Then muddle it for the juice or pop it in a small food processor.  

The other ingredients are vodka, lemon juice and orange liquor.

As quick fruity mixed drinks go, this one has a few shortcuts to be just that.

For the lemon vodka you can use bottled lemon juice, vodka, Cointreau, soda water and sugar.

That is right, just throw that sugar right in!  And shake, shake, shake! 

This classy drink is one of the fruity drinks you will be asked to serve again! 

This cranberry Prosecco cocktail is made of Cointreau, unsweetened cranberry juice, and Prosecco. 

The presentation is stunning with sugar or white frosting on each champagne flute rim, with frozen or fresh cranberries and rosemary as garnish!

No shaker is needed for some fruity alcoholic drinks like this Cape Cod cocktail. 

Vodka and cranberry juice gets mixed with ice cubes. 

After stirring, squeeze the juice from a lime slice in the glass and toss it on in. 

If the juice was unsweetened, add a little simple syrup for a touch of sweetness.

The best place to start a fall apple cider cocktail is from a fruity bar drinks recipe.

You can use your own favorite alcohol as the base and capitalize on the amazing apple harvest that autumn brings.

There are pictures and a video and variations and garnish ideas and even menu options!

Got to love a customizable recipe!

We all love a delicious pineapple upside down cake, so fruity mixed drinks that go by the same name absolutely have to be sweetly tantalizing!

It calls for pineapple juice, cake flavored vodka, amaretto, fresh lime juice, and grenadine.

Cherries and pineapple slices make for a decidedly fruity presentation!

As fruity bar drinks go, the frozen strawberry daiquiri is a popular one, so let’s see how to make it at home! 

Needed ingredients are frozen strawberries, sugar, vodka, and lime juice.

Mix these all together in a blender till smooth and ta-da, drinks are served! 

Garnish with sliced strawberries and sliced lime wheels alternated on a cocktail toothpick!

The deep rich berry color in this cocktail says “holidays” to me more than any other of our fruity cocktail recipes. 

This one instructs spiced rum, pomegranate juice, Cointreau and ginger beer to be stirred together. 

Then, the glasses are filled with frozen berries and the cocktail poured on top. 

The frozen berries act like ice keeping the drink cold without diluting it.

This strikingly bright green colored cocktail with the melon flavored liqueur takes sour to another level of fruity alcoholic drinks.

It is easily made by simply adding vodka, Midori, lemon juice and lime juice in a tumbler with ice. 

Top it off with a glug of club soda and garnish with a cherry before serving.

This is a different, glamorous, light, refreshing take on a martini, this time with passion fruit. 

These fruity drinks combine vodka, Cointreau, passion fruit puree, and honey.  

Sweetness is subjective so you may love it as is or you may want to add a bit more honey!

This is a shake up of the Moscow mule using blackberry jam. 

You read right. Blackberry jam! 

A super fun way to add fruit and sweetness to fruity cocktails. 

Shake together vodka, lime juice and blackberry jam with ice. 

Pour into glasses with ice and top each with ginger beer and garnish with lime wedge or fresh blackberries. 

Beautiful and delicious!

Some fruity bar drinks date back over 100 years like this one. 

Excellent instructions are given to capture the intended flavors by properly combining gin, dry vermouth, raspberry syrup, lemon juice and an egg white. 

Easy recipe for homemade raspberry syrup and you can use a pasteurized egg white if you like.

A knockoff recipe is hard won when trying to replicate fruity alcoholic drinks. 

The blue color is so tantalizing and inspiring and the combination of coconut flavored rum, pineapple juice, sour mix and blue curacao is certainly unique. 

Serve in a tall glass with a pineapple slice and maraschino cherry.

I am going to guess you really love fruity cocktails so let us push onto yet something different starring papaya and orange juice. 

Additionally this papaya rum punch recipe has simple syrup, triple sec, white rum, and club soda. 

Spoiler alert, you may need a juicer to get pure juice out of the fresh papaya. 

Beachy vibes for miles!

Strawberries have entered this list of fruity mixed drinks! YEA! 

Lots of flavors go well with strawberries, so let’s see how this one plays out!  

First dice, sugar and mash the strawberries. 

To them add ice, gin, rose water, and a pinch of salt. 

Pour into glasses, top with club soda and lime wedge.

As you know, fruity cocktail recipes would include the sangria family which include a wine, a hard alcohol and fruit.  

This recipe includes red wine, brandy, orange juice, triple sec and sugar. 

After stirring, add lemons and strawberries. 

Here’s where this takes a turn from others on this list. 

It needs to be chilled for 30 minutes to eight hours. 

If desired, lemon lime soda can be added when serving. 

Plan a bit ahead for this one!

Often fruity drinks have unique colors and this Caribbean sunrise is no exception.  

When looking at the filled glasses, they actually look like a sunrise!  

Beautiful layers of dark pink, orange, and yellow remind you of the perfect paradise location. 

This recipe calls for vodka, lime juice, and pineapple juice. 

After pouring, grenadine is added slowly as well as a pineapple slice before serving.

The next up on our fruity bar drinks list is easy watermelon pineapple mint mojitos. 

Lots of good flavors, not too sweet, yet hits the spot with summer’s beautiful watermelons.

Round up watermelon juice, pineapple juice, white run, and simple syrup. 

Additional mint leaves make the perfect garnish. 

Are there fruity alcoholic drinks for autumn beyond spiced cider? 

Sure there are! Here’s one now! 

Pumpkin bourbon cocktail incorporates apple cider, pumpkin vodka and pumpkin bourbon! 

Once in a glass, top off with ginger ale and garnish with apple slices or a pinch of cinnamon! 

Lovely deep cider color.

This pina colada boasts a taste of the tropics! 

It doesn’t get any better than these fruity cocktails! 

The usual suspects are put in the blender with pineapple and pineapple juice, coconut cream, white rum, and sugar to taste. 

Pineapple slice to garnish and carry you away!

🍹 More grapefruit juice cocktails! More! 🍹

The bottom line

No matter your favorite fruit, there is bound to be a cocktail that uses it! 

Experiment a little with some of these and perhaps you’ll become inspired to create a new one!
