Try a mango mimosa for your next brunch, or host happy hour with a classic hurricane. Click through to find a new favorite.

Strawberry Margarita

This strawberry margarita [1] is a crowd-pleaser and especially enjoyable during Summer. It's refreshing and fruity, yet salty and strong — perfection in a glass.

Temporary Getaway

For a satisfying, sparkling cocktail that is so good it's known as a temporary getaway [2], combine apples, orange and lemon juices, elderflower liqueur, and sweet sparkling wine to create a luxurious fruit-filled drink.

Kumquat Fizz

Put kumquats or any citrus fruit to good use following this kumquat fizz cocktail recipe [3]. Muddling the kumquats will release their juices for a clean sweetness that blends well with ginger syrup.


For the fruitiest cocktail of them all, sip a hurricane [4]. This classic recipe features two kinds of rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, and passion fruit nectar. It will surely kick off any party.

Redhead in Bed

You will not be disappointed by this fruit concoction more formally known as a redhead in bed [5]. The mix of strawberries and lime juice is refreshing, while the citrus vodka adds a subtle kick. For the final touch, top with chilled Riesling.

Apricot Smash

This apricot cocktail [6] is bursting with flavor. All you need are apricots, agave, lemon, and bourbon to try it for yourself.

Mango-Grapefruit Mimosas

Give OJ a rest and make your mimosas with mango nectar [7] instead.

Kiwi Cobbler

Grab a mason jar and shake up a refreshing kiwi cobbler [8]. With a hint of vanilla, it's similar to a fruit soda with the exception of tequila, and a great boozy drink to pack on picnics.

Buzzy Fuzzy Navel

The buzzy fuzzy navel [9] is a fun take on a classic '80s-era cocktail.

Modern Henry #1

For an updated version of a 1970s staple, the Harvey Wallbanger, turn to the Modern Henry #1 [10]. The fruity combination of lemon and orange juice is nicely balanced with a few dashes of Peychaud's bitters, vodka, and Galliano.
