It’s nothing complicated, but I love blueberry tea.  I’m sick right now and drinking a ginger/peach/rooibos one and am not sure how the amaretto will taste in it, so I might add a bit of grand marnier instead.

A nearby pub makes a delicious cider mojito.  I wish I knew how to make it!

I make a lot of smoothies at home and will sometimes add rum or vodka.  Frozen raspberries or strawberries, some lime juice,  cranberry juice, maybe a bit of honey and ice goes well.  Depending on how thick I make it sometimes I serve it over gingerale/grapefruit pop/club soda.

This may be boring but I have decided that I ove Malibu cocobut rum and OJ. It tastes like vacation in a glass to me.

Amaretto and cranberry juice is good too, although it is swert

I can’t seem to find a real recipe for this, others are similar but all have more or less ingredients – so I’m claiming this as Sunset Punch!  At least until I’m told that there is a recipe for it.

Fill a tall glass with ice

1/3 Captain Morgans Spiced Rum (not Bacardi, please)

1 part Orange Juice

1 part Pineapple Juice

1 big splace Grenadine

It comes out layered and fruity and OMG!!!

@Cornmuffin09:  I did it 50/50 since amaretto isn’t very strong. It was delicious, but don’t drink too much because it can be so sweet!

This is one of those moments where I wish I was older…

I love fruity vodka drinks as well. I recently tried a classic, vodka collins. It is sooo good. I use sprite instead of soda water and I add a little grenadine to it.

I believe the recipe I used was from this site. They also have cool seasonal drinks too.

I bottle champagne, 1.5 packages raspberries, 1 cup sugar

Freeze 1/2 package of berries

Crush remaining rasberries and add sugar in pitcher. Let mixture sit for about 2 hours in frige. Add champagne, mix and cover. Let it sit in the frige for another hour or two. Serve in champagne flutes with a few frozen berries.

If you’re impatient about the time, it still tastes good when you just mix it up really well right before drinking. It’s also good if you make it in the morning for an evening party.

@Cornmuffin09:  State law has a loophole I’ve taken advantage of on a friend’s birthday or two, but that’s about it. Neither of us are/will be (he’s 21) big drinkers, but it’d be nice if I could just go buy it when I wanted some.

@Cornmuffin09:  In GA, you can drink for religious reasons, medical reasons, or on private property with parental permission. My parents don’t care as long as I’m responsible, so if for some unknown reason the cops got involved, I could use that as an excuse. Not that it’s ever going to happen, but at least I’m covered if it does.

@Cornmuffin09:  

This is a good cranberry cosmopolitan

 

4 parts cranberry juice

3 parts vodka

2 parts tripel sec

1 part sweetened lime juice

 

Your “part” could be a tablespoon or a cup!  You can keep it in the fridge too.  We serve it in chilled martini glasses.

 

My favorite go to drink is gin and tonic.
