This is a recipe my Dad invented that has brought my family many a pleasant winter evening. I have tried many different Irish coffees, this is by far the best ever. If you have a problem with caffeine you can substitute decaf coffee; or we have used 1/2 decaf and 1/2 regular grounds when making the coffee.
If you're like me and you drink lots of water throughout the day, sometimes it's nice to perk it up for a change. Just water, with some nice, summery flavors. Don't let this sit around in the fridge too long - three days max.
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.
These are a fun adult party appetizer. I usually swipe some of the little "ketchup" cups from fast food restaurants to put these in so you don't have any clean up. Different flavors can be used besides the one listed, try blending for fun!
I am a Mojito fanatic, but it wasn't until my brother made me one that I knew what Mojito perfection was!!! You might laugh at my recipe, but it works every time, regardless of the size of the mint and/or lime.
My Italian friends love this. Cin-Cin (pronouned Chin-Chin)Roberto and Gisella! Make this drink in the proportions listed (1/3 Campari and 2/3 OJ) with regard to the glass you're using. Hope you know what I mean.
This is a one fantastic version of the classic Brunch drink, the Bloody Mary! You have to love spicy to try this though....DO NOT attempt if you do not like hot peppers!!!! Oh, it's sooo good. I always add pickled okra to these Cajun Mary's!! The recipe is for 4 drinks. The mix keeps well in the fridge for several weeks (leave vodka and garnish out of course).
Warning: if you try this recipe, you'll never again trust a bartender to mix your mojito.
I was fed up with mediocre bar mojitos, and decided to learn to make a traditional one myself. After much research, I think I've arrived at perfection. Try it for yourself!
Notes: Real sugar cane syrup really does make a difference. Any good liquor store will have it. Use mineral water with a high effervescence, like Perrier. You want a bit of texture to your mojito to balance the sweetness.
Winter's coming and there's nothing better on a cold snowy night than a good Tom & Jerry! After trying several other batters we have determined this one is the best - the marshmallow cream is what makes it. The batter will last for several days. Some separation will happen but you can mix it up and it will be fine.
When you are ready to serve, just squeeze a lime wedge over ice in a stylish rocks glass, drop the wedge in the glass along with a few fresh mint leaves, and then fill the glass two-thirds of the way with the mojito. Top it off with club soda. Let the party begin!!!! :)
