To make a Fruit Fly cocktail, you will need a few fresh fruits of your choice. Some great options include strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. You will also need lime juice, simple syrup, and ice.
Start by muddling a handful of your chosen fruits in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Muddling is the process of gently crushing the fruit to release its juices and flavors. Once the fruit is muddled, add in the juice of one lime and a splash of simple syrup. Simple syrup is made by combining equal parts sugar and water and heating until the sugar dissolves. It adds sweetness to the cocktail without altering the flavor.
Next, fill the shaker with ice and give it a good shake to mix all the ingredients together. The shaking will help chill the cocktail and create a nice frothy texture. Once everything is well mixed, strain the cocktail into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with a slice of lime or a sprig of mint if desired.
The Fruit Fly cocktail is light, refreshing, and bursting with fruity flavors. It's perfect for sipping by the pool or enjoying at a summer barbecue. So, next time you're in the mood for a tasty and refreshing cocktail, give the Fruit Fly a try. Cheers!
