Alcoholic Smoothie Recipes

There are many types of smoothies but the best in my opinion is an alcoholic smoothie. Well once in a while you get a strong craving that only a smoothie can curb throw in some alcohol and you have a winner. There is nothing better on a hot summer day then sitting in the evening with family and friends enjoying a few cold delicious smoothies. I love fruit no matter what kind it is but some of my all time favorite fruits are peach, strawberry, pineapple, banana and coconut just to name a few. Start with fresh ripe fruit and in my opinion and you have some perfect smoothie beginnings.
