Mixed Citrus Daquiri #SpringSweetsWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Light and refreshing this cocktail is the perfect start to your Easter festivities or any Springtime Celebration. Key lime, blood orange, and kumquat juice sweetened with a bit of brown sugar and mixed with Rum before being garnished with fresh mint,  this cocktail is as lovely to look at as it is to drink.

We share recipes from #SpringSweetsWeek on Pinterest! Make sure you follow the board to see all the delicious recipes shared this week.

Cut citrus

You can use any citrus in this cocktail but the blood orange is what gives it it's lovely pink hue.  If you don't have key limes you 1 regular lime.  No oranges on hand?  Try it with 1/4 of a grapefruit instead.
