Non-Alcoholic Cocktails

I thought I would include some drinks for a change, as the holiday weekend is just around the corner, and if for some reason you or your guests can't drink, there are still some great concoctions to be made without alcohol.

So put away the Lipton's Iced Tea and Diet Coke, and try some of these fun drinks - they look so good that even the alcohol crowd will want to try them!

1. Cinderella

1/2 cup Fresh
1/2 cup Juice
Lemon Juice to taste

Pour all ingredients into shaker, shake, then pour into serving glass (makes 1 serving).

2. Fruit Fantasy

1/2 cup Fresh Orange Juice
1/2 cup Pineapple Juice
Small Slice Honeydew Melon
Small Slice Cantaloupe Melon

Pour all ingredients into blender, blend until smooth, pour into serving glass (makes 1 serving).

3. Blueberry Limeade

1 Cup Sugar
6 Cups Water
1 2-inch Piece Fresh Ginger, Peeled and Sliced
2 Cups
1 Cup Fresh Lime Juice (about 8 limes)
Ice Cubes for serving
Mint Sprigs or Twists of Lime for Garnish (makes 8 servings)

Combine sugar, water and ginger in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and let cool. Pour into a heatproof pitcher and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.

In a blender, combine the blueberries and the lime juice. Puree until smooth. Remove the ginger from the sugar syrup and discard. Pour the blueberry puree into the sugar syrup. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any blueberry skins. Serve over lots of ice and garnish with mint or lime.
