Tisana is a fabulous party drink from Venezuela. It is fruity and light and traditionally served without alcohol at children's birthday celebrations. It is easy to make ahead of time, and it keeps refrigerated in a pitcher. If making for children simply substitute wine with Sprite or 7-UP.
I love tea. I love apples. This only makes sense for them to come together in this great tea. This makes enough to serve to others, but I usually end up saving it all for myself. You can drink it hot, just skip the step about the ice. I prefer this particular tea over ice though. I sometimes add a bit of honey as well. Note that you need 1/2 cup of mint leaves, plus 4 sprigs of mint for garnish.
This recipe is a variation of the famed New Orleans Sazerac that many claim was the first drink to be dubbed a cocktail. The traditional rye whiskey has been replace with pear vodka. I found this in an April 2007 Washington Post and have yet to try it.
When child actress Shirley Temple visited the Royal Hawaiian Hotel or Chasen's in Beverly Hills, this is the drink she was served. Both restaurants claim to be the creator of the drink. Most variations today don't use the orange juice and usually use Sprite or 7-Up in place of the ginger ale, but if you are looking for authenticity, this is it.
Looks like it takes some effort to make but gosh does this sound good! This came from a blogger named Patty on the vox site. Sounds like she knows what she is talking about. Her recommendations: Use only the best lemons, ones whose skins give off a lemon sent and smell heavenly. A neighborhood lemon tree is ideal. If not, go organic. Also, make a large batch as it will go quickly once friends get a taste. Makes great gifts. I am posting this for ZWT4 per a teammates request.
We've all heard of the health benefits of green tea these day, haven't we? Yes we have...thus I will dare to rationalize my little cocktail as being healthy in my mind! LOL. The flavor of the green tea is apt to get lost with the strong flavors of the rum and lime so resist the urge to add more of these ingredients. I recommend Tazo Zen Green tea blend as I think it has enough umph to stand on its own here. Original idea came from the Mellow Monk. Adapted to suit my tastes.
This is a summertime drink my mother used to serve back in the 70's when she was entertaining. Best served in frosted glasses.You''l need time for the juices to chill if they are not already. (not included in cooking time)
