The original recipe that is given to guests upon request at City Hall on Main Street in Disneyland! *Update*: You can find non-alcoholic creme de menthe syrup at this website: www.davincigourmet.com. Thank you, Mr. Adams for that information.
This is a recipe my family uses from time to time when in dire need of comfort from a rotten cold. Helps you sleep, the rum settles your aches and pains, and the lemon and spices help open up breathing passages.
From Top Secret Recipes www.TopSecretRecipes.com. Irish whiskey mixed with cream and sugar with a taste of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and almond. What more could you ask for. Original posted by Mom at Allrecipes
A recipe from my friend Roy Heflin. Note that the recipe calls for blackberries so as to generate a useful nutritional panel (RZ doesn't have nutritional data for the generic "berries"), but any cane berry (blackberry, raspberry, loganberry, boysenberry, marionberry) as well as blueberries can be used in this recipe, as can a mixture of any of them. Frozen berries work fine, as long as they are not pre-sweetened.
Diabetic friendly. To give this more of that lemon taste freeze some of the lemonade in ice cube trays. Then use the lemonade ice cubes instead of just plain ice cubes. This came from an "Equal" Newsletter.
A version of this recipe was recently in the New York Times. I've been making it this way for years and it's so much better than the recipes which start with hot brewed coffee. I usually start this at night to have fresh iced coffee the next day.
Finally got to try this...it was deeelish, but then again, I've never had "real" eggnog. Mom always makes boiled custard for Christmas and I could literally bathe in that stuff. I love that custard stuff so much I request it year-round. Occasionally, I get some. This is great and I hope other diabetics will give it a try.
I couldn't find any other cold brewed coffee recipes here, but I noticed the large number of iced coffee drink recipes. The benefit of having cold brewed coffee is that you don't have to wait for hot coffee to cool down, which results in an old, bitter coffee flavor, nor do you risk watering down your drink with a lot of melting ice.
This is more of a guideline than a recipe. Amounts will depend on personal taste. Experiment with quantities to find a strength you enjoy.
Prep (active) time refers to amount of time to measure, mix, shake and strain.
Cooking (passive) time refers to time the coffee sits and brews.
Adapted from "Peterson's Holiday Helper," by Valerie Peterson (Clarkson Potter, 2008). This is a blend of all the favorite holiday flavors, not really a true sangria. You can use a sparkling cider or grape juice, or even a champagne if you'd like to. Cherries are an excellent addition to this drink as well. This is best left to sit for overnight to let the flavors blend well.
Based on a recipe from Sir Hugh Plat's "Delightes for Ladies" (1609), although he wouldn't have used vanilla or allspice, which are both New World foods and not commonly found in Europe until after 1750.
