Weekend Cocktail: Fabulously fruity cocktails

Summer begs for deliciously fruity, frosted cocktails and the good news is, you don’t have to escape to a Latin restaurant or a poolside tiki bar on some sunny island to get your fix. From mango-infused to shaken with pineapple, fruity drinks are easy to make. And get this: while the option to garnish your cocktail with a tiny umbrella is all yours, there’s no denying that a fruity cocktail always satisfies during summer’s hottest days.

This margarita, infused with sweet mango juice and topped with a spicy cayenne-salt brim, brings to mind the sliced mango and pepper-dusted treats sold by street vendors throughout Mexico; a deceptively simple combination that immediately satisfies cravings for something salty, sweet, spicy and sour.
