Quick to make and very refreshing on a hot day. This has been adapted from Rita G. Springer's 'Caribbean Cookbook'. I never add the sugar. Obviously, you could add a shot of vodka to make it rather more daring.
I found this on a hunt for non-alcoholic cocktails and mocktails to serve to my friends that don't drink at parties. I haven't tried it yet but I am adding it to the drinks menu for my New Year's party next week. It sounds like it would be fun for kids too.
This is my variation of a punch recipe from the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. Raspberry everything! I've made it for several parties and potlucks and always have requests for the recipe. If I don't make it people get mad! I usually double or triple it and always have extra ginger-ale on hand to pour in when it gets thick. The dry ice is optional but makes for a very cool bubbly fog effect.
This is a tea that can be made to give as gifts at Christmas or to just enjoy. Easy to make and brings back memories of my mother (now deceased) making this (and the cocoa mix) to give to friends and family every Christmas. A family tradition. This recipe comes from The Blue Denim Gourmet cookbook (published by the Junior League of Odessa, Inc. Odessa, TX). (can sometimes be found on Ebay)... my all time favorite cookbook.
Well, I can't tell you HOW I got the "secret ingredient", but it's one of those things where you kind of say to yourself, "Now why didn't I think of that"? Coffee creamer! The powdered kind. That's it--simple I know! I grew up on these things--a must have at the mall--and trying to make them at home just wasn't quite right....try this. You may need to fiddle with the amounts some. When I make this recipe the blender is topped off - about 1/2 inch from the rim, but I don't really measure anything when I make it--i just throw stuff in until it tastes right.
This recipe comes from Susan Branch's Summer Cookbook. I saw a recipe similar to this but I think this version is spectacular on a summer day lounging by the pool. I realize this seems like a strange combination but the taste is delicious. I like my beers on the hoppy side but I definately use a light beer in this recipe.
There's nothing like the blended flavor of chocolate and coffee. The Mocha Whip Drink satisfies that eternal craving for mocha.
This easy recipe can be used as an appetizer or a dessert. Or just a special treat for a special person. However you decide to use this - you'll be glad you did.
Yummy and delicious - this drink even fulfills at least one serving of dairy!
