Like my other two entries, here’s a short and sweet recipe for a mixed drink. This one is dairy-based, so be careful if you’ve never had liquor and dairy together before (it produces odd effects in some people). It’s good, but loaded with alcohol and the sweetness of the other ingredients masks that, so be careful with how many you drink. In the picture below, my whipped cream had already melted due to ambient temperature.

So, as I’ve posted before I like to mess about with food and drink. I had some company over the other day and they knew that I occasionally made Sangria and asked for some. So I improvised a bit and it turned out crazy good. This was the result:

Hulkgria


2 liter bottle of Mountain Dew

¼ lb of cherries pitted and sliced in half I used rainier cherries)

2 kiwis sliced

1 lemon cut into slices

¼ lb of strawberries

8 oz of lemon schnapps

8 oz of triple sec

¼ cup simple syrup (I used Splenda, but sugar is fine).


1. Pour all liquid ingredients but the Dew into a single container. Shake it like a Polaroid picture.

2. Pour dew and mixture together. Stir well. Put in fridge over night.

3. Add fruit.

4. Serve chilled.

I didn’t drink often before my diabetes diagnosis, and even then it was mostly mixed drinks or wine. I’m not a beer person, never have been, probably never will be. After my diagnosis I thought I would never been able to have a cocktail again. My doctor advised me not to drink or if I did, not often. “two drinks a week” was what she suggested. Seeing as she is my doctor – I’ve listened to what she has said. This hasn’t really stopped me from toying around with different recipes for cocktails. Today I think I’ve created something quite tasty (with low sugar) and felt I should share. Enjoy.


Pink Sunset


1 ½ ounces of Licour 43

2 tbsp of sugar-free honey (or regular honey)

1 frozen lemon slice

3-4 cubes of ice

3 ½ ounces of a fruit-flavored carbonated soda (I used Diet Cherry 7-Up)


1. Put the ice in the cup first along with the lemon wedge.

2. Pour 1 tbsp of honey on top of the lemon slice and let it congeal.

3. Pour the remaining 1 tbsp of honey and Licour 43 in a sealed container and shake vigorously.

4. Pour the honey-Licour mixture over the lemon slice and “slosh” the mixture around the ice.

5. Pour in the soda.


Viola! You have a pink sunset.
