This is an easy to make refreshing drink made from elderflowers. These start to make an appearance around June. Once made and bottled it can be frozen and used when required. I first made it with my children who helped to pick the flowers and then make the drink. They still enjoy it and is now an early summer ritual. It's nice as a gin mixer, or diluted with soda or sparkling water for a change. Can be made without the oranges and less lemon according to your preference.
It's an astonishingly basic combination of ingredients that brings tantalizing flavour. Great on spare ribs or chicken.
This recipe is from my gran's church cookbook from 1960. Hope you'll enjoy it.
WONDERFUL!!! A wonderful punch made with white wine, mango and orange slices. Peach schnapps, cognac and ginger ale round out this summer party drink.
I found a good sangria recipe and headed to the off license to purchase the alcohol. In the queue, ahead of me, was a man who said he has been a bartender for 20 years now, and that my recipe needed a few touch-ups if I wanted to make it like the Pros. So, here is what he professed to me, muchos thanks to the other submitters for their delicious versions.
This is a brilliant refresher for hot summer days. You'll find food grade citric acid at a health food store or Asian market.
This is a really easy tropical-style cocktail recipe. You can garnish it with some pineapple pieces or one of those little umbrellas.
Horchata is a traditional Mexican drink, which the Mayans and Aztecs called this the drink of the gods. Here it is made even more heavenly with the addition of rum.
Plum Baby's baby foods are so packed full of flavour, they make great dips when mixed with a few strong ingredients. I love their salmon, spinach and parsnip puree so I experimented and came up with this.
