Cocktail Serving Suggestions

  • Make any of these drinks non-alcoholic by replacing the rum or tequila with the equivalent amount of soda water, lemon-lime cola or fresh fruit juice.
  • Add fresh fruit to the blender, or serve it as garnish.
  • Try a flavored rum in the piña colada or daiquiri recipes for even more island flavor.
  • Make a “deconstructed daiquiri.” Soak fresh fruit in your favorite rum, then use it to top a scoop or two of any ¡Hola Fruta!® Pure Fruit Sherbet variety. Serve in a martini glass.
