A wonderful recipe from Suewho on Allrecipes.com
She adds: "The secret ingredient is salt, which removes any bitterness. Don't be tempted to use reconstituted lemon juice or to add the juice until the sugar water is completely chilled!"
I found this recipe in Good Housekeeping magazine -- I love cappuccino, but don't have it a lot during hot summer weather, so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. It's refreshing, delicious, and a drink I've made many times again. (I have listed the time for making and chilling the coffee as the preparation time, although I usually make a potful of double-strength coffee in the evening and keep it in the fridge. It can be stored for up to 2 days.)
In the summer, this is how I start each day. It's so quick and simple--the perfect thing to throw together as you're running out the door. I make this in a travel-safe container and drink it on the way to work. It's easiest to just reserve a cup of coffee when brewing it fresh.
Rich and rewarding, this coffee coupling is sure to warm your spirits. To save time when entertaining, dish up the butter mixyure with a small scoop and let guests mix their own drinks.

My mom used to make these on St. Patrick's Day. We sometimes blended them (which, when blended, they look like a milkshake). We usually had these as a treat every St. Patrick's Day, instead of the usual root beer float.
This can be used to sweeten all kinds of things. I use it most for tea and mixed drinks. Cheaper than buying the bottled stuff at the store AND can be flavored simply by adding some extract in the flavor you want for the finished product. I have added mint, orange and vanilla extracts just to name a few. Start with about 1/2 tsp and taste. Then add more if you desire.
I cut this recipe out of a Kraft Food Magazine a couple of months ago. I don't know if it is perfect but it does make nice ice tea. We have only made the sweetened tea. If you want to use sweetened tea, read instructions thoroughly to make as directed.
The ice cream will melt in the punch and turn it into a baby blue colour leaving frothy blue and white clouds floating on top --- this should serve around 20 people but of coarse it will depend on the size of glasses used --- this punch may be prepared slightly in advance with the top covered tightly with plastic wrap so that the 7-Up will not loose it's bubbles, add in scoops of ice cream before serving --- for a pink punch see my recipe#125733
I've been making this punch for years. I wish I had a dollar for every time someone asks for the receipe and then thinks that I'm truly keeping it a secret because they cant believe it only has 2 ingredients. It is the easiest, most light and refreshing compliment to any shower, tea or party gathering. It's beautiful looking too and matches any theme or color. You can make it for a few people up to 100's and still, it is a money friendly punch because it has only 2 ingredients. But don't let the 'only 2' ingredients fool you. It's delicious! (Some people say it reminds them of champagne.) Kid friendly, teen friendly, adult friendly. Enjoy!
I found this recipe in a book I picked up at a thrift shop. I'm not really a tea drinker so like to find ways to get those good anti-oxidants without the tea taste. This is all orange & spice so I quite liked it.
I didn't have whole cloves so made mine with a dash of ground cloves instead.
I had one cup warm & then put the rest in the fridge to have iced, it was nice both ways.
