Apricot and Cherry Breezer

Apricot and Cherry Breezer ~ The soft sweetness of the apricots provides the perfect backdrop to the splash of cherry tartness. Add some light rum and dash of triple sec and you have a cocktail that will lull you into a weekend ease.

Apricot and Cherry Breezer

I love this drink because it’s not loud, it doesn’t scream its way into a first sip with any dominating flavor. In fact everything comes together quietly and smoothly for a summer cocktail that will have you gently leaning back in your chair.

Notes and Variations:

  • If you don’t have fresh apricots, use 3-4 oz. Kern’s apricot juice. If cherries are not in season for your area try using 2-4 oz cranberry juice. As always sip and taste as you mix.
  • To make this a virgin variation omit the alcohol.
