Memorial Day last Monday ushered in the beginning of summer. My kids were in parades in two different towns, plus we had a BBQ at our pool club to go to in the evening.
It is a fun time of year, but it can be hectic. Not only do you have more events and activities to go to, you also have projects that couldn't get done when the weather was cooler... like fiber glassing your canoe.
All of these activities are so much more pleasant to do with a refreshing cocktail. Passion XO's new fruit juice mixers make preparing cocktails super easy. They come in three exotic flavors: Passion Fruit, Pomegranate and Blue Curacao.
I sampled their Passion XO Pink, which they provided a wonderful cocktail recipe for.. of course, the day was busier than I planned on it being, and I didn't get a chance to buy all of the ingredients to make the cocktail. This didn't matter. I just mixed Passion XO Pink with seltzer and I had a delicious and refreshing drink on the first hot day of the summer season.
Passion XO cocktail mixes are truly convenient. They are made with premium XO cognac and natural fruit juices. You can taste the quality of this drink in every cool refreshing sip.
