VitaFrute is a ready-to-drink cocktail that comes in 4 varieties: Margarita, Lemonade, Cosmopolitan, and the new Coconut Colada. You can find them on the shelves of many national grocery store chains, such as Walmart, CVS, Ralphs, Krogers and Target. However, these drinks differ from the competitors in a few ways. First, they are made with premium and all-natural ingredients and are certified organic. They also clock in at under 125 calories per serving, so there’s no excuse not to indulge a little.
What I love about the product is that you can serve the drinks straight from the bottle (like my boyfriend did) or mix them with your favorite mixers and ingredients for your own cocktail (like I did). Two of my favorite drinks are margaritas and mojitos, so I tried to combine the two in my own cocktail called the Mojita. Or maybe I should call it the Margajito? Although the two drinks are very different on their own, they both have lime juice as a main ingredient, so they blended well together.
I whipped this up this past weekend for a little summer pre-game with our friends Ken and Kara. Everyone had their own favorite flavor (mine is the Margarita, while James loved the Lemonade the best). The flavors are so diverse and there are so many recipes you could come up with (like adding fruit or blending the cocktails with ice) that your summer parties will be a piece of cake with these cocktails. Just chill them in the refrigerator, stock up on a few handy accessories like these adorable straws and stirrers and serve.
- 3 oz. VitaFrute Lemonade, chilled
- 1.5 oz Polar Mojito Seltzer (a summer 2014 special edition)
- Splash of lime juice
- Lime slice for garnish (optional)
- Mix together the VitaFruite lemonade, seltzer and lime juice together and stir.
