5 Cocktails For People Who Don’t Like Cocktails

Some of us like cocktails that might be best described as brutal. Others want a fun and refreshing experience that feels like sunbathing on a beach in Mexico. Well, this article is for the beach in Mexico crowd. Let’s talk about fruity goodness that goes down easy while celebrating in the balmy evening.

Bear in mind that these cocktails hardly taste like they have alcohol in them and go down very easily. It is always important to drink responsibly. Enjoy these fruity concoctions, and always make sure there is a designated driver.

Here are five cocktails anyone can appreciate.

Pina Colada

So it is the basis for one of the worst/greatest songs in history, but it is also a delicious drink. If you get caught in the rain, this is the drink of the tropics with a strong foundation in coconut and pineapple.

Take rum, pineapple juice, and coconut milk and enjoy this frosty, blended cocktail.

Sex on the Beach

Sure it sounds naughty, but it tastes oh so good. This refreshing summer cocktail tastes like you’re right by the beach, and it’s easy drinking.

A mixture of vodka, Peach Schnapps, orange juice, and cranberry juice is pure refreshment that is subtly sweet and fruity.

Strawberry Margaritas

A frosty concoction that tastes like, well, a frosty strawberry concoction? Sure. Perfect. This is a cocktail that you’d never know is a cocktail if someone didn’t tell you. And it is very easy to overdo it if you’re not cautious. Tasty things go down fast and easy and sometimes too easy.

Some tequila, triple sec, strawberry puree, and lime juice create this sweet concoction that was the basis for the famous song, Margaritaville.

Mimosa

Mimosas are all the rage and took off with the Sunday brunch tradition. Certainly, you’ve had a few friends who had a much too fun Sunday brunch. The thing about mimosas is that they aren’t intense or strong because they are a juice mixed with champagne, but they go down very quickly.

While the traditional mimosa is champagne and orange juice, innovation has come to the mimosa, and many mixtures are now available.

Fuzzy Navel

Someone got creative in the 80s and said, “Let’s take a basic screwdriver and make it better.” Thus was born the fuzzy navel. It is a party drink with delightful flavors covering vodka’s bitterness.

This drink is super easy to make as it is just orange juice and peach schnapps. The alcohol content isn’t high, but the fun factor might result in drinking too much. Be careful.

Are you thirsty yet? Each of these fruity and tasty concoctions is simply a delight to drink. They aren’t the potent whiskey cocktail or dirty martini with a definitive alcohol taste. Each is a fun drink that has little alcohol taste and a whole lot of refreshment.

Enjoy your pina colada and getting caught in the rain.
