I seem to have a thing for fruity cocktails! May be because I have a HUGE sweet tooth or I don’t feel all that guilty drinking one. Hey, it’s made with fruits so, it has to be good for me:)

To make this yummy drink, muddle some ripe plums and strawberries,stir all other ingredients, strain and serve. Ok, you have to make the simple syrup first. It is just equal parts sugar and water, cook until sugar dissolves and cool. And simple syrups are so versatile, you can add any flavoring to customize.
