For those that like fresh tart and tangy and getting a buzz! ;) I had lots of big, fresh, juicy grapefruit and wanted a margarita so I came up with this. I used 4 grapefruits getting almost 4 cups of juice.
Well being that I don't like to drink calorie filled drinks (calories I'd much rather spend on food!) I always try to experiment with low calorie drinks. So one day I came up with this. Tastes great! Add more or less coffee or equal to taste but I find this to be optimal. Oh by the way the 4.5 calories is from the coffee mix.
A fellow bartender and I whipped this drink up as a special for the single 20 to 40 somethings that used to come into our bar after our town's "Mixer on the Mall." The women LOVED them and the men LOVED buying them for the women! Warning, this drink tastes sooooooooo yummy, but it's strong! Hence the name! tee hee!
A low-carbing friend invented this ..... it's so yummy but I only crave it in summer. Of course, don't use good champagne as a mixer - I buy Andre Extra Dry, I've gotten that as low as $3.69 a bottle! I like a 50/50 mix but you can adjust to suit your tastes.
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.
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.
