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 lemon and extract the mint oils from the leaves.
It took me forever to come up with a frappuccino recipe that tasted like it came from a coffee shop. most people say theirs taste like Starbucks, but it doesn't. This actually tastes like Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks, and is so easy.
One of my favorites! Actually I think last night I may have had one too many. They taste so good, you forget what it is. And you get all the calcium you need for the day. What a drink! This is supposed to be made with half and half, but its too heavy for me, so I use low-fat milk. Ingredient amounts can be adjusted to personal preference.
Finally Captain Kate! Here I am w/your belated birthday present. This is a little something light I've found refreshing in the afternoon when I'm busy doing my ZWT cooking! It's tasty, goes down really fast & smooth & doesn't cloud your mind when you're measuring ingredients either!
In my never-ending quest to figure out what to do with that bottle of burgundy wine I opened. (I only used 1/2 cup of it in a previous recipe) I found this recipe for Sangrias. Now what do I do with the rest of the orange liqueur? I see another mission in my future.
A nice treat for hot summer days, without the cost! Can be made with or without the chocolate syrup. For a change, substitute vanilla ice cream for the sugar and ice . Got this from a friend, who got it from a copy-cat cookbook.
This is the most delicious punch. My mom used to make it for holiday gatherings. My sisters and I could never get enough of this punch and looked forward to gatherings when my mom would make it. It has a unique flavor with the cinnamon syrup. Appears as though it takes a long time to make but it is the cinnamon syrup that requires advance preparation. My mom would make the syrup up days in advance of the punch and store it in the refrigerator.
I found these pudding shots on the TOH board. I've made this many different times and I'm not allowed to attend the annual family reunion weekend without bringing these. I've switched out the irish cream liquor and used raspberry schnapps and cheesecake pudding, lemon schnapps and lemon pudding, rootbeer schnapps and vanilla pudding, plus many other combos. Any flavor combination that you can find a complimentary liquor for will work.
