This looks really beautiful served in a glass pitcher with floating mint. This is a perfect drink to serve friends while outdoors on a beautiful sunny day. The lime mint syrup should chill after it rests for 30 minutes, so plan accordingly. Cook time is chill time.
Wassail comes from the Anglo-Saxon toast "waes hael" or be whole". The first carols were Yuletide drinking songs and singers caroled their neighbourhoods carrying their wassail bowls with them. That was just to get you into the spirit, now down to business. I have no idea how many servings you'll get. When I make this I don't use any alcohol and I serve small amounts to younger children (diluted with apple juice) while the men bring big coffee mugs (with their own spirit base).
This will yield about 5 cups but can easily be doubled, if you prefer a more creamier drink then use the 18% table cream. Light brown sugar only for this, and make certain to use very strong brewed coffee!
Use the freshest lemons and limes for this. The final product can be bottled and stored in your fridge for weeks and should taste like a tart homemade lemonade. This recipe came with the bottle of Chambord that I bought.
I have to try this just because of the name. Found this on the internet. Eight people have tried it and rated it 10 out of 10. Update: I've tried this now and did like it. The directions say to serve it unstirred, but I could taste predominately the vodka and rum this way. I personally like it better stirred as I feel it made a much smoother drink.
This is one of my favorite fall recipes. It is one of my mother's recipes. I love to make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas get togethers. It makes the house smell wonderful too. If you don't want the cider too sweet, you can leave out the brown sugar and it is still very good.
Café au lait with the flavors of mocha & mint or mocha and orange added. The proportions of coffee and milk can be varied to suit your tastes (like 3/4 cup coffee and 1/4 cup milk for stronger coffee or 1/2 and 1/2 each for weaker coffee).
I had forgotten about this until a friend told me she had passed it on ....
I had given this a year earlier to my friend who loves mangoes. I bought a lovely box and put in a bottle of her favourite champagne, a tiny bottle of Grand Marnier, 2 glasses and 2 mangoes. Then printed the recipe below on a card for her, she was absolutely delighted. She has been passing it on ever since!!
This makes a great Chrismas gift, or birthday gift. It is easy, and the taste is out of this world! I will never buy Cap'n Morgans again. This is definitely spicy, you can alter the amount of serranos to taste. The recipe is attributed to Robert Parzick.
Inspired by the movie, "Chocolat"! Cocoa was used by the Aztec and Mayan as a sacred drink. It was brewed with various spices and drank unsweetened as part of ceremonies. This recipe uses pure cocoa and several spices, including chili peppers. The flavor is very rich and aromatic, like a dark perfume. Experiment with the sweetness to your liking.
This is a copycat recipe of a specialty coffee mix of one of the Junior Leagues in Texas. I used to be gifted with a jar every Christmas, and it would run out all too soon. But now I can have it anytime I want. Jars of this mix make great gifts, and not just at Christmastime! By the way, try it with
almond extract, instead of the peppermint, sometime.
