This is a typical Persian beverage that is enjoyed by many Iranis and has a flavor that is not unlike a cross between grape juice and lemonade with a touch of flowers. It truly has to be experienced to get the full understanding of how good it is, and it goes wonderfully as a complement to any Middle Eastern meal.
Great for breakfasts, chilly nights, "I don't feel so good" days, and just when you want to relax! Sometimes I like to mix this half and half with coffee. Other times I like to let it cool down and pop it in the blender with some ice cream and make a milkshake! Hot chocolate isn't just for snow-days, you know! ;)
A great hot drink for those winter months, especially when your having a party. Not only does this taste delicious, but it'll smell great through your house while cooking. We've also added rum to this for a more adult drink.
This is an amalgamation of a few mulled wine recipes and it turned out great! The easiest method is to substitute out the spices and zest for a pre-made tea bag of mulling spices (one tea bag per 16 ounces so this recipe would need about 3) but I've included the spices here in case that's not available. Any red wine will do but I think the merlot has a nice balanced flavor for this. The vermouth really adds a nice layer to the warmth and taste of this wine.
This is a refreshing Cuban drink. It's hard to stop drinking these on a hot summers day. I made these for the fourth of July and we went on to 3 yes 3 pitchers! If you don't have a muddle stick try a mortar and pestle or the end of a wooden rolling pin. Please use fresh lime if you cannot go ahead and try the already bottled lime juice but if you do think about that when you rate this recipe! I did both and there's nothing like fresh! Same goes for the fresh mint if you need to you can use frozen but I DON'T recommend extract. And for the sugar real granular is what helps muddles the lime and extract the mint oils from the leaves.
This is a fabulous Mojito recipe that makes enough for 4 glasses. I usually double or triple the recipe and serve it in a glass pitcher that is garnished with mint leaves. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo! This Mojito can be made with either white or gold rum but don't leave out the bitters. ¡Vivas!
Cuban Jello Shots! Minty Lime! Can use Marti Mojito Rum if available where you live.In these pictures I made it in my vita mix so I didn`t have to strain the mint.That is why you see a head on the shots in the picture.
I’ve made it my mission to find the perfect mojito recipe – I know, it is a tough job. So I’ve tried dozens of different recipes (See the sacrifices I make?) and have come up with what I think is the perfect mojito. The secret is the simple syrup and the bitters.
