Thanks to the inclusion of coconut rum, it's difficult to detect any taste of alcohol in this extra creamy-delicious Piña Colada. The rum may be left out altogether for a delightful tropical drink your entire family will enjoy!
This is the best 'recipe' for Margaritas I've made...and I've made a lot. Not too sweet, not too sour - just PERFECT! Depending on how big you like your Margaritas, this will make about 20 wonderful drinks.
This is a favorite at my summer get togethers. This should be prepared and frozen a day ahead, just remove from the freezer about 10 minutes before serving...you are going to love this drink! You can always add in more sugar for a sweeter taste. Although the original recipe states to use freshly squeezed lemon juice, I use half bottled and half fresh for this.
Wonderful for those long summer evenings, when it's too hot to go to bed...it will keep the conversation going forever (or at least until the bottle is empty...!)Keep this in the freezer (it won't freeze because of the alcohol in it, but it will become even creamier and more refreshing) and take it out about ten minutes before serving (Prep time includes overnight soaking)
This is a stronger version of the classic Sangria and should only be served to consenting adults. Seriously though, it is strong and it sort of creeps up on you if you are not careful. I serve it and my wine and tapa parties, on the terrace of my apartment (located at about the 1500 foot level overlooking the Mediterranean), however it really can be served anywhere with the same results.
Rumtopf (rum pot) is a traditional German beverage. There are many variations. Take this recipe as a more general blue print for your own recipe. The traditional way of making this beverage starts as early as the fresh fruit are available in spring / summer and ends with the last fresh fruit in autumn. But today you can make in "1-step", because you can get always fresh fruit in the supermarket.
This recipe comes from a 1940's issue of Gourmet Magazine. Made famous in all those glamorous movies of the era, highballs were justly popular in the '40s. But, for more exotic fun, lots of Americans were heading down to Cuba, home of the Mojito. This recipe came from Sloppy Joe's Bar, in Havana.
Sunday brunch has become more of a tradition than the big Sunday dinner. Served in the late morning, combining breakfast and lunch, it is an informal approach to entertaining family and friends. And a pitcher of these Bloody Marys is now expected.
Yes to cool down the Adults! And you'll be swinging from the vines so watch out! A tropical mixture of mango & guava nectars, pineapple, banana, coconut and oranges. You can drink as is or add an other shot of your favorite rum.
This is great to bring to a BBQ, 4th Of July Party just put frozen juice in cooler and bring along.
