PARTY DRINKS


If you are sick of overly sweet punch at receptions and parties, here is an alternative:

 

LAZY LIME AND LEMON PUNCH (serves 10)

To start:
1.    1 can each of frozen lemonade and frozen limeade
2.    3/4 cup white rum (optional)
3.    Lemon and/or lime slices for garnish
 
Putting it together:
1.    In a large punch bowl or pitcher, mix together lemonade and limeade according to instructions.
2.    Add rum, if that is in the cards, and you are not serving to minors!
3.    Throw in the garnish (also optional)
 

MAI-TAIS (serves 10)

These can be very popular, so you may have to change proportions and make more, depending on how thirsty your guests are!
 
To start:
1. Either 2 cans of frozen orange-pineapple juice, or 1 can of orange and 1 can of pineapple.
2. 3/4 to 1 and 1/2 cups of Myers dark rum, depending on much you want to spike it.
3. 1/4 cup Rose’s sweetened lime juice, may add more or less to taste
4. 2 tbsp. Rose’s grenadine

Just mix all ingredients together in a large pitcher. Stir well and serve chilled!

Refreshing for a hot day!




MARGARITA MADNESS (serves 4 happy people, but this runs out fast!)

This is not inexpensive to make, but I add this in honor of the legions of friends and guests who have enjoyed my margaritas and clamor for more!

To start:

  1. 1 and 1/2 cups of decent tequila: could be Cuervo Gold or Sauza Hornitos
  2. 1 cup Hiram-Walker triple sec, or may mix with better stuff like Cointreau, Grand Marnier, or another type of orange liqeuer.
  3. 3 very large limes or 4-5 smaller ones.
  4. One lemon
  5. Half an orange
  6. Margarita salt (not the same as regular cooking salt, available in liquor stores)

Putting it together:

  1. Squeeze the juice from lemon, limes, and orange, best with a juicer, and combine in pitcher. (Remove seeds!)
  2. Add tequila and triple sec (or equivalent)
  3. Add 1 and 1/4 cups cold water

When serving:

  1. Make a nick in one of the lime halves, and then wet the rim of your margarita glass all the way around.
  2. NOW, just dip the glass rim in the margarita salt.

 Serving suggestion (do we need any?): Over ice, of course, and with chips and salsa or guacamole!!!
