Super Fruit Your Summer

Rich in nutrients and high in antioxidant power, superfruits like acai and pomegranate have made their way into everything from cosmetics to jelly-beans of late. This summer, superfruit what's in your cocktail glass by grabbing a pitcher, throwing in a handful of fresh berries, adding a decent pour of a superfruit spirit (try VeeV, the world's first acai spirit) and topping up with ice and soda. Jam-packed with fresh fruit, these cocktails are simply a better - not to mention more beautiful - way to drink. Studies have shown that, in moderation, adding alcohol to fruits can actually boost the fruits' nutritional count (Reuters: Fruity cocktails count as health food, study finds. )

Here are some tips on how superfruit cocktails can rock your summer:

  • Make your party "pitcher-perfect": Pitchers are the new punch bowls and an easy, timesaving way to serve superfruit cocktails to your guests. Spend less time behind the bar and more mingling poolside with friends . Sharing a pitcher is also very social, so you might end up with a new friendship or love connection after a night of pouring and sharing drinks.

  • Add color for a party-theme: Choose fruits for your superfruit cocktails according to your mood or even give your party a color theme. Take 4th of July: Layer strawberries and blueberries in a pitcher filled with VeeV and soda for a perfect red white and blue party.

  • Keep your summer figure in check: Have you worked too hard for that bikini body to ruin your waistline with a sugary cocktail? Superfruit cocktails and pitchers are made with fresh fruit, natural ingredients and lots of ice, which means you don't have to worry about artificial sugars or flavoring adding inches to your waistline.
