Frozen Hula Hoop

A sweet-tart blend of pineapple, raspberry, and lemon adds fresh fruit flavor to this slushy frozen drink from Erick Castro spiked with white rum, Aperol, and dry red wine. With plenty of heat from the trio of alcohols, those fresh summer fruits keep the drink well balanced. Make your own raspberry syrup by infusing simple syrup with fresh berries, or purchase a bottle at the liquor store or online.

Erick Castro muddles plenty of mint leaves with simple syrup, shakes the drink, then pours it through two strainers to remove any particles. The result is a perfectly silky cocktail. Slideshows:  Garden-to-Glass Cocktails

Erick Castro created this sparkling punch. It's terrifically light, but the malted grain–based genever adds whiskey-like depth.
