Refreshing summer cooler: Amaretto, cranberry and orange cocktail

Been bugging Speedy to mix a cocktail drink for days. He refused saying it was much too hot for alcoholic drinks. Summer came with a bang prompting fellow food blogger Caren to comment on Facebook yesterday that if she had put some tomatoes out in the sun, she’d have sun-dried tomatoes today. Yes, it is that hot.

Recipe Notes

Why add ice after mixing the drink?

To delay the dilution of the flavors and potency of the cocktail.
