IT'S HOT OUT THERE



We wanted to share with you a few of our favorite drink recipes. We use these for parties, get -togethers, bunco, showers, basically anytime. You can make a little or a lot!

LEMON WATER
1 Tbsp. Citric Acid
1 Tbsp. Lemon Extract
2 1/2 Cups Sugar
5 Qts. Ice Water
*Mix together and add a few lemon slices.

CRANBERRY COOLER
1 Liter No-Name Brand Diet Sprite
1 Can Cran-Raspberry Concentrate
1 Can White Grape Juice Concentrate
*Mix and add ice (Sonic is the best of course, we just buy it by the bag full) Add some berries for a fun flare.

BRAZILIAN LIME-AID
3 Cups Water
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Lime - cut into fourths
* Blend in a blender using the "PULSE" button, pulse 10 times (Do NOT blend more then this or it will leave a rind taste. Then add:
1 Tbs. Sweetened Condensed Milk- Pulse 2 more times. To remove large pieces of lime pour through a strainer and serve over ice.

These are all crowd pleasers. So use them the next time you need to make a fabulous refreshing drink!!!! P.S. You can get these jars at Wal-mart or Target, they come in a few different sizes and they have lids.
Love, The Tipsy Girls
