When the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control eased restrictions on how restaurants can promote happy hour specials, the agency also started permitting bars to create flavored and infused alcohol from distilled spirits. This means that you can get drunk off of fruit.

New on the menu today, Bracket Room in Arlington sells a spiked fruit salad: watermelon, pineapple, cantaloupe and honeydew soaked in a mixture of vodka, triple sec, melon liquor and Malibu rum. Yes, you will be carded when ordering this salad. / Bracket Room, 1210 N. Garfield St., Arlington
