This is a great summer party beverage! Perfect for sitting around the veranda with guests. Pleasing enough for all different tastes, including those who do not drink. Pairs wonderfully with a backyard barbecue. The idea behind the drink was a quick Mojito for a crowd, without all the work. If you want to make a pitcher change the servings to 6.
This is my adaptation of a drink served at Applebees. It is so easy and cheap. The recipe I wrote is for a single 10-oz drink, but feel free to adapt to make a pitcher (or two :-) The brands don't really matter but these are my personal preferences that I wanted to remember. And feel free to add whatever fruit you like! Best if served chilled of course!
This comes from a cookbook from a local realty business. I have not tried it, but the name caught my eye! I read the ingredients and thought this sounded like a delicious "slushy" drink! I am dedicating it to a much loved Zaar member who goes by the name of Iron Bloomers! LOL!
I made this up after seeing an episode of Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals where she made something similar. I've used Ben & Jerry's Strawberry Kiwi Swirl sorbet in place of the lime sorbet so feel free to substitute your favorite fruity flavor! Goes down fast and smooth so be careful!
Another from the Rachel Ray show site - apparently one of OPRAH's favs!! Sounds great, doesn't it ladies??
***Just an update -this has been a hit the three times I have served it now with ladies and men a like! A festive, fun alternative for a holiday gathering - not too sweet unless you want it to be - it all depends on the champagne you choose! Looking forward to Christmas and New Years with this one!!(***ZWT3 - Kirsh and CHampagne - FRENCH)
