Apricot Shake (Non-Alcoholic)

This was one of the most complicated non-alcoholic drinks I've made, and I'm not sure it was worth all the effort. I can see a slushy shop with lots of syrups and juices on hand blending this up as part of their menu of frozen drinks. I just can't see someone, even me, doing this at home.

That is because I couldn't find apricot nectar, so I had to use apricot jelly and cook it into a syrup. I also made cherry syrup by cooking down cherries in tart cherry juice. All of this was fun and experimental, but a lot of work for a drink that pretty much tasted like pineapple and lime juice.
  • 3 oz. apricot nectar
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. cherry syrup
Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a chilled Collins glass.
