Apricot Summer Sling

Apricot Summer Sling

This Saturday, June 20th, marks the official first day of summer! Celebrate with The Apricot Summer Sling. A cocktail that will lighten up your day no matter how you’re feeling.

It is a little fizzy and boozy with the addition of the Black Cherry Lime Hard Seltzer from Vizzy but it also totally enhances the flavor! Now a sling is all about fruit, a little citrus to balance, and fizzy. This fits the bill! Don’t let Apricot Nectar worry you at all… it’s just pureed apricots. Apricots are the perfect summer fruit to keep you refreshed and full of essential vitamins and minerals. It is considered to be a fruit of freshness. You can think about that while you’re sipping on one this weekend.  This time of year peaches get all the attention so we gotta give apricots a little love.  Light, sweet, and juicy this cocktail delivers summer in sip and never filling. This is ideal because you can never just have one, everyone knows the rules.
