This was a seriously delicious (aka dangerous) cocktail we served at our Halloween party. It goes fast, so make plenty! Great for any fall get-together.
Here’s another green smoothie recipe that I like a lot. Tastes great, and these are also awesome for using up fruit that may be on its last legs. This one is my favorite so far.
- 1 apple, coursely chopped
- 1 banana
- Handful of seedless red grapes
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 1/4 cup of water
- A couple of handfuls of fresh spinach
Throw it all in the blender and liquify it. 🙂 Makes a great breakfast!
So I’m on this weird green smoothie kick. I’ve been feeling pretty gross physically from all the holiday eating, and lots of eating out during our recent move. On a particularly bad day, I picked up one of those Naked green smoothies in the bottle, and felt about 1000% better. So, I decided to bust out the blender and give it a go at home!
- 2 pears, I used Bartlett, chopped up a bit
- 1 apple, chopped up
- pinch of cinnamon
- pinch of cardamom
- 1/4 cup water
- Couple of handfuls of fresh spinach
Stick it in a blender and go to town! Trust me, it’s delicious!
Shawn’s favorite and it is pretty tasty, which is a lot coming from someone who loves vodka tonics, regardless of time of year. 🙂
I love Lychee fruit, and a sushi restaurant that a friend and I like to visit has just about perfected the Lychee-tini. I had to see if I could reproduce at home, and it does come out pretty well!
A very light and refreshing cocktail that goes well with winter or summer parties.
This is way too tasty for its own good, and I don’t even enjoy Bourbon too much. This was one of my contributions to a summer cocktail party we had a couple of months ago, and it seemed to go over well. I got this from Martha Stewart.
One of my favorite winter cocktails, and a random use for creme de menthe. It’s festive and fun for the holidays. Courtesy of Washington Post.
- 2 ounces cognac
- 1 ounce white creme de menthe
- Twist of lemon peel
Fill a mixing glass two-thirds full with ice. Add the cognac and white creme de menthe. Shake well, then strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with three or four ice cubes (not crushed ice). Garnish with a lemon twist.
