Celebrate a little! Chill out with this refreshing cocktail made with Stolichnaya vodka and grapefruit and cranberry juices. Serve over ice with a fresh lime slice and maraschino cherry garnish. Note: If you don't have Stolichnaya vodka, any good vodka will do just fine.
I always associate autumn with cranberries. Here is an elegant liqueur that's really easy to make (and a treat to receive as a Christmas or hostess gift). If giving as a gift, be sure to allow enough time (in days) for the fruit to fully infuse the liquor. Cooking time is actually infusion time. UPDATE: After the liqueur is made, try using it to make Rita L's cocktail A Jolly Christmas Special Cosmo or Red Hot Lovers Cosmo (recipe #109007), or if you give the liqueur as a gift, you might want to give the recipient a copy of Rita's recipe to go with it!)
Recipe from Molto Mario and posted in response to a request. I make this every Christmas as hostess gifts and put it in pretty bottles with ribbon. Everyone who gets this is very appreciative. In Italy this is considered a "lemon digestive assistant" - whatever it tastes great!
I was in a search for a great cocoa mix that tasted very similar to the store bought kind. I tried a couple of recipes but they just weren't it. So, I combined a few of them together and came up with this! My family just thinks it is fabulous. You can substitute different flavors of pudding but we find Chocolate fudge works the best!
Completely refreshing change of pace to the usual lemonade. The marashino cherry juice adds a delicious color & flavor, and the little bit of fresh squeezed orange & lemon really add to the refreshing homemade taste.
I'm going on a Food Network frenzy! This recipe comes from Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello. It looked so refreshing when he made it! He says You can make this with any citrus. The key is using the best and freshest citrus possible. Fruit that has been in storage a long time gives a muddy taste to the drink. Obviously, prep time does not include the 4 weeks standing time!
Great if you feel a cold or the flu coming on. You can serve Hot or Chill and pour into a tall glass This spicy tea is a great way to begin or end any meal or to enjoy between meals. Given ginger's renowned antinausea and anti-inflammatory properties, the tea is especially comforting when you're traveling by boat,car or airplane. I've also made it without adding the tea.
Oprah recently featured this treat as one of her favorite things. I ordered the mix from Serendipity in NYC. The food editor from our local paper went in search of the recipe after numerous requests from readers and here it is--straight from Serendipity 3 restaurant. When my mix arrives, I'll let you know how this recipe compares to the real deal.
My mom always kept this yummy punch onhand growing up in the 70s. My two brothers, who were teenage eating machines and rowed on the crew team in high school, would usually burn through 5 slushy gallons in a couple of days...just between the two of them!
