bit of lime too, but its optional.

2 (6 oz.) cans unsweetened pineapple juice

2 c. gingerale, chilled
1 pt. lime sherbet

shrain the pineapple, put it all together and mix, serve it with an

You can also make it with raspberry sorbet and add fresh  blackberries, raspberries and strawberries. On super hot days for guests, I make it in a punch bowl. Large amount of liquids of course , then I take a whole container of sorbet and empty it into the bowl and let it slowely melt. The fresh fruit make it enjoyable as well.

 

Petals.

 

Mango sorbet with orange juice is good too.

A pineapple Mimosa ... instead of orange juice, use pineapple and Champagne or Cava ... Nice and refreshing and great for brunch ...

My favorite "cocktail" for summer days (100 in the shade and i've been walking outside, or working in the house) is

half a glass of tonic water (schwepps - has the most quinine)

the rest of the glass filled half with pineapple and half with grapefruit juices

a few frozen raspberries

(instead of sherbert, you might blend the frozen raspberries with a little of the juice - it would be pure, natural flavor, which sherberts are often not)

 

The quinine is supposed to prevent leg cramps, and it's so incredibly thirst-quenching.

If I added the rum, longcolts, i wouldn't be able to quench my thirst - for which i need to drink fast!  I'd faint dead away before getting halfway through!  But i can imagine if you like cocktails it would be good.

You can alter the proportions as needed to meet your desired level of booziness/how early you need to be at work the next day, but I've always liked simply mixing pineapple juice with banana liqueur.  If you find that too sweet, a splash of orange juice can add some brightness.

Well I have been known to drink a cocktail or 10 depending on the party!  Oh and also depending on whether I have to drive or not.  My days of stupidity are thankfully behind me.  I finally grew up and realized how damn stupid I was being.

I always thought that when i became a grownup i would like alcohol like everyone else.  Instead it never happened.  I remember my first experiences of drinking wine (half a glass at a meal at friends' houses) would make me fall dead asleep on the couch during the conversation. Hardly the life of the party!  I never really could get what the big deal was about alcohol.  People would say - try this, it tastes just like orange juice.  No.  It tastes like orange juice gone bad.  smile.gif  And consider that my family, being italian and being in the 50s, would encourage me to taste it all the time - here' just put your finger in it and taste it, and i'd see the jewel-like red liquid and think "ah, sweet grape juice" and get something that was more like "blah! sour!"

maybe that's how to prevent kids from taking up drinking later!
