Some cocktails you can enjoy before five o’clock are Cranberry Pear Prosecco, Blackberry tonics, Blood Orange Martini and Caramel Apple Cocktail.
A lot of people think alcohol should only be consumed at night. But cocktails are refreshing mild drinks that you can have before five o’clock.
Cocktails are arguably one of the best drinks that you can have almost any time of the day. Whether you are having lunch, dinner, or breakfast, a cold cocktail can lift your mood. It is also the perfect party drink when you want your guests to feel relaxed but not too tipsy.
What is a Cocktail?
Some might think that cocktails are just a mixture of two different drinks. But the original cocktail is a mixture of alcohol with other ingredients such as fruits, other drinks, or cream.
Although the origin of cocktails is still a mystery, the most ancient record of cocktails dates back to 1803 in the U.S. Since then, the use of cocktails has spread far and wide and now each country has its own unique variant of cocktails.
With that said, here is our list of thirteen refreshing cocktails that you can enjoy.
