National Fruit Cocktail Day

In my ever-lasting quest to turn the mundane into the FUNdane, I have over the last month posted recipes for National Peach Cobbler and Blueberry Pie days. But the action doesn’t stop there. I discovered that May 13th was recognized (by someone else besides me) as National Fruit Cocktail Day.

Ready for the play on words?

Here’s a recipe from Hiram Walker that calls for the brand’s popular Triple Sec, which adds just enough orange notes to add more depth to this lemonade recipe. Enjoy it today, or make it in a batch for your Memorial Day weekend festivities.

Blueberry Lemonade (serves two)

3 parts Hiram Walker® Blueberry Passion Schnapps

4 parts Hiram Walker® Triple Sec

20 parts Lemonade

Pour Schnapps and Triple Sec into a tumbler full of ice. Fill with lemonade and stir. Garnish with lemon twists (or fresh blueberries).

Isn’t this more fun than fruit cocktail? Cheers!

  1. That Blueberry Lemonade image is delicious. Is there another liquour other than Hiram that you could suggest?

      I can certainly recommend other Hiram Walker products to you! I am a big proponent of the brand’s Triple Sec – it really holds up well against competitor brands and, is traditionally available at a third of the cost! I also really enjoy Hiram Walker’s seasonal Pumpkin Spice liqueur – it is a great treat in the winter time! You can view the entire portfolio on the web site:

      • Due like the Pumpkin Spice but, am looking for alternatives to Hiram Walker. I know Thatchers’ does a Blueberry, but they are only local to Wisconsin.

  2. Yum! Does the drink really turn out that true deep blue color?
