Vegan MoFo, Day 29: Tasty Drinks--Week Five!!!

Welcome to the last several days of Vegan MoFo 2012 (don't stop me...I'm NOT gonna cry...). Today, I have several yummy drinks to share with you lot.

Fruit Punch
adapted from Meatless Meals, pages 42-43
serves 6--supplies mineral salts

1 lemon, supremed and sliced
1 orange, peeled and sliced
2 cups grape juice
2 1/2 cups cold water
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp salt
Small handful fresh mint, torn
Sprinkle of nutmeg
1/3 cup orange juice
2 cups ginger ale

In a pitcher, mix the lemon and orange slices, grape juice, water, lemon and orange juices, salt, mint, and nutmeg. Cover pitcher and refrigerate for about an hour. Pour mixture into glasses filled with ice--half punch and half ginger ale. Garnish with mint leaves.

{lots of ingredients combine to make a yummy concoction}

{this drink will shine a bright light on your day}

Grape Juice with Ginger Ale
adapted from Meatless Meals, page 44
serves 2--supplies mineral salts

1/2 cup grape juice
1 1/2 cups ginger ale
1 Tbsp ginger syrup

Mix together chilled grape juice and ginger ale. Serve over ice.

{fizzy and grapey}

{check it out!! it looks like it's floating!!}

Jelly Water (I'm not thrilled about her recipe name, but it is what it is...)
adapted from Meatless Meals, page 47
serves 1--supplies mineral salts

2 Tbsp boiling water
2 Tbsp fruit jelly (I used grape)
1 cup ice water

Mix together hot water and jelly and stir until dissolved. Fill a glass and ice water (about half of glass). Pour in jelly mixture and stir. You could also drink this hot, but it weirds me out.

{my least favorite...also, DON'T use jam, otherwise you'll have floaters}
