Drinking alcohol out of fruit makes it healthy… right?
As much as we know we need to eat two serves of fruit every day, sometimes it’s just too hard – especially if you’ve had the sort of day when you just want to drink vodka out of the bottle.
The good news? You can totally do both.
Not only are these shots guaranteed to be delicious, they also get points for presentation. Serving alcohol inside your fave fruits is a great way to impress guests. It also minimizes the dreaded after-party clean-up because everything is completely edible. So scroll down, choose the one you can’t resist and knock a few back.
