This is the cat's Meow! I know you are saying there are already a lot of recipes on this site for the same thing, I researched them before posting mine and this one is just a little different so here it is. Everyone I have ever served this to absolutely goes beserk over the taste and says it's as good as the real thing. It's so much cheaper too! I found this on an internet site, but can't remember which one, it was to long and to many fifths ago!! You can easily double the recipe.
I found this in with my grandmothers recipes. (Memories)A good drink to serve on St Patty's Day!Stick a straw and enjoy a minty milkshake! Try also using mint chocolate, chocolate ice cream! Blend in your favorite cookie!
It's just to yummy! Great this time of the year. You can pakage all the spices in a pretty bag or glass jar enclosed with directions. And give away!
The picture displays not only the tea but the spices that make it.
This is a drink that will sneak up on ya and slap you in the face. You don't even taste the alcohol. I sometimes mix up a big batch of this and take it to dinner parties. It gets a lot of interesting comments, because it is such an unusual color. People really like this.
This wine is ready to drink and bottle in 11 days. The older it gets the better it's quality. I got this recipe from the University of Minnesota. A note with the recipe said it was from a small family vineyard in France. I made a 5 gallon batch one year and gave it for gifts until I ran out 31/2 years later. One of the recipients was my priest. After Christmas mass the year I ran out, He stopped me to thank me for his gift but told me he missed my gift of wine that year. I told him I ran out. He then told me he had to call the local liquor store to open up so he could buy wine for Christmas Masses as he had been using my wine for communion wine on Christmas for the past 3 years. I felt so honored that my wine was used in such a special way. Number of servings is based on number of 4 ounce servings per gallon of wine. I use beer bottles It seems just enough for 2 for a meal. I use quart bottles for gifts. Be sure to store wine bottles on their side so the corks do not dry out.
