I named this cocktial the LAX Cocktail because I created it using the Absolut Los Angeles and X-Rated Fusion. It ended up being a nice, fruity drink that allowed both spirits to shine in the mix.

The lime juice and orange bitters just kind of sealed the deal which ended up being a fruity menagerie of blueberry, acai berry, acerola cherry, pomegranate, mango, blood orange, passion fruit, lime and orange. It may sound like just another fruit-filled martini but it is in no way overly sweet or syrupy like other cocktails tend to be.
