Best Beverage Recipes

I just put together some beverage recipes that I really enjoy; especially in the summer.  When water doesn't do the trick, I like to try something different. 

Below are the favorites of mine that really "hit the spot" on a hot day (or any day).  At the bottom of the page, I have a link to my tasty cocktail recipes.  I used to bartend (a hundred years ago), and still remember how to make a wonderful drink.

These drink recipes are handy on hot summer days. Seriously, they are delicious and easy to put together.

Chill your mugs and pour yourself a glass.  Makes a great vodka lemonade. You can also use half lemonade and half iced tea for a wonderful change on an old fashioned drink.



OLD FASHIONED LEMONADE RECIPE

6 lemons
4 cups cold water
2 cups boiling water
1 cup sugar (more or less to taste)
1-2 lemons thinly sliced to float
ice

You can rim the glass with sugar.

Put the lemons in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds to warm them up a bit. Boil 2 cups of water together with the sugar. It dissolves the sugar for no grainy taste. Chill and serve.

This is one of my favorite recipes for iced tea.

BEST ICED TEA RECIPE

6 bags of Luzianne tea
3/4 cup white sugar, or to taste
2 cups boiling water
4 cups cool water
pinch of baking soda

Sprinkle the pinch of soda in the bottom of a large glass heat-proof pitcher; as this cuts down the bitter aftertaste. Pour in the boiling water and add the tea bags.

Allow to seep for 15 minutes. Remove the tea bags and stir in the white sugar until dissolved. Pour in the cool water and put in refrigerator until cold. Add slices of lemon when serving.

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
