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.
It's true, I'm a drinker. I love punches, teas, mocktails, sodas... When the Mexican market moved in, I discovered tropical nectars. Mango and Guava are my favorites. The lady who runs the market gave me this punch recipe that her daughter makes. It's delicious, fruity, and easy. She said they serve it with a platter of the Mexican cookies they sell there, which are themselves delicious, as well.
This is a refreshing breakfast drink. A light desert. There are many different things you can do with this basic recipe. Different spices, ice cubes for a slushier drink, ice cream, vanilla yogurt. The possibilities are endless.
This is the closest recipe of Orange Julius I have ever made. The other ones didn't have that unique flavor the real Orange Julius has. I don't remember where I found it though. Now this may not be the "real" recipe for an Orange Julius, but I assure you that it tastes very close.
