Sour-Cherry Gin Slings
1 pound sour cherries, stemmed
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
Strips of zest from 1/2 lemon
Strips of zest from 1/2 orange
2 cups gin
2/3 cup Cointreau
2/3 cup fresh lime juice
2 1/4 cups sour-cherry syrup
Lime wheels and fresh cherries, for garnish
MAKE THE GIN SLINGS: In a large saucepan, combine the cherries with the sugar, water and citrus zests and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for 40 minutes. Pass the mixture through a fine strainer, pressing on the solids; you should have 2 1/2 cups. Let cool.
In a pitcher, combine the gin with the Cointreau, lime juice, sour-cherry syrup and a few dashes of bitters and stir well. Pour into ice-filled glasses and top each drink with sparkling water. Garnish with the lime wheels and fresh cherries and serve.
A very sweet Lady sent me some tea to try .....Chai in two different aroma's....just heavenly !
Petals, that cake looks divine, what kind is it?
That cake is called Stollen ( yeast bread with fruits ), enrobed in icing sugar . It's a cake/bread I make about 4 times a year. There are different types as well, this one does not have marzipan in the middle.
Traditionally it is made around the holiday time, but with any good thing , why reserve good things for just ' once in awhile ' , life is too short .
ps. the tea is divine, you should smell the aroma in my living room, made a big pot.
Sorry FF: we are not going to highjack this great thread.
saw this on Pinterest,
what fantastic idea for a backyard get together, put out all sorts of different fruit pops
and bottles of any sparkling wine and/or non-alcoholic bubbly...
Is it possible that those ice pops are actually transparent? is there a way to make juice (or even water) freeze without bubbles and come transparent like that???
