"Enjoy Springtime with Dole"

Fruit Cocktail Cooler
Dole Fruit Cocktail
April 1951

I don't think Fruit Cocktail has changed since the time it was first created. Overly syrupy and slightly mushy, it remains a classic. This advertisement for Dole Fruit Cocktail includes new ideas for serving it.
I tried recreating the Fruit Cocktail Cooler except I didn't have the strength to slice open a coconut so I used a pineapple instead. The colors don't pop as much but it still goes with the "tropical" theme.
