When people think of cocktails that have orange juice, they usually think of the Mimosa, Screwdriver, French 75 and of course, the Tequila Sunrise. Sure, those are tasty… but did you know that there’s an orange-y, tennis-y libation called the Tennis Elbow”?
It combines the fruity flavors of orange, apricot, and pineapple with your favorite brand of gin. Even if you aren’t a gin drinker, you will LOVE this drink! And if you don’t drink alcohol, simply leave out the gin, and you’ll still have a deliciously fruity beverage to enjoy at breakfast or anytime!
Give it a try this weekend, or serve it up at your next tennis function :-)
