Festive Prune Cocktail
This recipe was created through an Instagram partnership with California Prunes.
I am not much of a cocktail person to be perfectly honest. When choosing a boozy drink, I tend to gravitate towards red wine.
However, once in a while, on special occasions like the holidays, birthdays, or a fun get together with friends or family, I will sip on a little cocktail.
I will admit, this particular Festive Prune Cocktail sounds a little out of the ordinary. I, for one, have never had a prune cocktail before preparing this recipe. Nevertheless, I was really inspired to bring some light to this incredibly versatile ingredient and give a little festive twist to it.
Its bright red color, slight tanginess, silky texture, and wonderful citrus flavor notes make it a perfect drink to make during a holiday party on a chilly night.
I love that it features 3 different types of fresh fruit juices: prune juice, cranberry juice, and orange juice. All of these work together in beautiful harmony!
