Christmas already?! 🎁

December 06, 2018 | 0 Comments

How can it be December already 🤪?   With less than a fortnight to go, Christmas is literally around the corner!   But don’t panic about the menu.   Instead be pro-active and use multi task ingredients and recipes. 

 

Here’s a drink idea that sure to become a family favourite.  The initial recipe is a non-alcoholic mocktail that everyone will enjoy.  It’s a great holiday punch that’s light, refreshing and not too sweet.   Simple, easy and with only four ingredients this recipe is the perfect way to stay hydrated on lazy summer afternoons!

 

But don’t be fooled this recipe easily morphs into a delightful cocktail that works whatever the weather. 

 

Sydney Sunset Punch

 

Ingredients:

1          Ltr.       Apple Juice

1          Ltr.       Unsweetened (strong) Mint Tea

1/2      Ltr.       Watermelon Juice

1/2      Cup      Rainforest Lime Shrub

 

 

Directions:

  1. Mix well & chill.

 

The punch looks beautiful and is ideal to serve via a ‘help yourself’ punch bowl.   Feel free to add chunks of melon and strawberries.   (If you have the time ‘mix & refreeze’ and serve as a semi-slushie.   At the very least don’t forget the ice!)   

 

For a special touch serve in coupechampagne glasses and garnish with a sprinkle of edible flowers💐.    We love the festive Williams-Sonoma Vintage Etched Coupe photographed.

 

(Grownups can add up to 30ml Gin (personal favourite: Poor Tom’s Strawberry Gin) + (optional) 2 drops orange bitters per serving ‘topup’🍸.)

 

Quick, Easy and totally refreshing - Drinks organized with and without alcohol!   Next task?!

 

Happy Holidays!
