It combines the classic flavors of a refreshing gazpacho with vodka and spices.

                      Are you a true blue Fast & Furious fan? This Hollywood movie inspired electrifying cocktail has blue curacao, coconut, apple pucker, and lemon-lime flavors. We love the glow in the dark ice cubes that add a bit of drama and fun, just like the lights underneath the cars in the film.

                      11. Leaf and Spear

                      leaf-and-spear

Now then, in true LA style, this exotically spiced blend by bartender Christiaan Rollich of Los Angeles’s chic A.O.C. Wine Bar is made with kale. Oh yeah, you read that right! Kale?!

This would almost be a healthy skin tonic without the vodka. Serve this with Mexican food for a new twist on the classic.

                          13. The Espresso Martini

                          Advertising

                                  Jam in a cocktail? Why not? You can’t go wrong by adding alcohol with fruit and sugar. This jam cocktail uses lingonberry jam, but you can try this with your favorite jam. Might I suggest, blackberry jam and vodka?

                                  17. Strawberry Beer Lemonade

                                  strawberry beer lemonade

                                    Beer is not often used in a cocktail; however, it lends itself beautifully to create this refreshing drink. It’s already carbonated. With the growing trend of interesting craft beers with undertones of fruit, flowers, and even herbs to enhance flavor, makes beer an exciting base for a cocktail. This delightful, light concoction is a real crowd-pleaser that goes down well with non-beer lovers as well.
