4 zabavna, ukusna i laka koktela za Kentucky Oaks 2017

Ovi kokteli iz Kentucky Derbyja bit će favoriti zabave

Ovo je vrhunsko ljetno piće.

Ovaj vikend nam donosi dva dostojna razloga za slavlje: Cinco De Mayo i Kentucky Oaks. Za one koji ne mogu doći u Churchill Downs ili njihov omiljeni salon, evo četiri posebno izrađena recepta za koktele. Sve se može pripremiti za nekoliko minuta, a za sve su potrebni samo sastojci koje s lakoćom možete pronaći na lokalnoj tržnici.

Za tradicionaliste pomiješajte a Mint Julep.

Za barmena u trendu, pokušajte sa službenim Siva guska Lily Oaks.

Za bljuzgavi ventilator zamrznite seriju Vino Granita.

Za ljubitelje gaziranog pića pijte a Le Grand Fizz.

Hvala Grey Goose -u, Maker's Mark -u i Shopkick -u na ovim zabavnim receptima.


Koktel od rakije

Ovaj koktel od rakije je moj doprinos našem mjesečnom Progressive Eats -u. Na našem grupnom događaju članovi dijele recepte kao dio jelovnika kao da zaista učestvujemo na staromodnoj progresivnoj večeri, na kojoj bi članovi išli od kuće do kuće na različite kurseve.

Iako je ovog mjeseca tema inspirisana Memorijalnim danom, mislio sam da ću podijeliti ovaj staromodni, ali uvijek u stilu koktel, onaj koji sam prvi put popio preko vikenda 4. jula prije mnogo mjeseci.

Moj bivši muž je iz Indiane i iako to tada nisam mogla reći, mogu i sada. Mrzila sam posjećivati ​​njegovu porodicu. Oni su bili pleme vjerskih fundamentalista i na svakom sam se putovanju osjećao kao Sotona. Uživao sam u koktelu, nosio sam kratke suknje, OMG čak sam stavljao stvari na kosu kako bih postala plava.

UVIJEK su me pokušavali spasiti kao da nas tjeraju da idemo u crkvu i da opterećenje krivnjom ikada bude nešto što bi mlada žena/osoba pogledala i rekla, da …to ’s ono što želim!

Pušio sam cigarete u 20 -im i 8217 -im godinama, naviku koju sam stekao od roditelja i na sreću slijedio više očevim stopama. Jedno pakovanje sedmično, istina je! Uživao sam u cigareti s ledeno hladnom gaziranom vodom ili uz koktel, ali nikada sam po sebi kada sam odlučio prestati nije čak ni toliko teško, što je bila dobra stvar.

Moj bivši muž je pušio više od mene, ali bez obzira na to, kad smo otišli u Indianu, bili smo savršeni. Bez pića, bez pušenja, bez ičega …mogli bismo iskrasti poljubac ili dva, ali bio sam zabrinut da će grom udariti!

Jedne večeri, tokom posjete, nazvala me majka. Nažalost, to nije bila dobra stvar. Moja mama bi popila previše, a zatim bi me pronašla kako bi se žalila na sve, uključujući i mene. Nakon tog razgovora, rekao sam svom tadašnjem dečku da se iskradam vani da popijem cigaretu, pa sam se vratio iza njihove garaže i udovoljio.

Popio sam jednu cigaretu i popio ledeno hladnu koka -kolu iz boce i odmah su zakopali opušak iza garaže koja je bila zasebna zgrada koju je Sotona pokušao prikriti!

Ajme, sljedećeg jutra, kad sam ušao u kuhinju na doručak, ta JEDNA ušljiva ugasila cigareta sjedila je na sredini tanjura gdje sam obično sjedio, valjda čekajući da tražim odrješenje.

Nije uspjelo, pretvarao sam se u neznanje, ali bio sam iziritiran i …hej, jesam li spomenuo da mrzim odlazak u Indianu? Pa kako se, zaboga, to veže za ovaj koktel Barb, gdje je zabavni dio?

Pa, jedina stvar u kojoj sam uživao bio je odlazak s Billom u posjet njegovom najboljem prijatelju i roditeljima#8217. Na sreću bili su normalni. Toliko normalno da je, čak i znajući sklonost porodice Kiebel prema svemu što je zabavno biti grešan, natjerala nas na piće …i meni je trebalo!

Njena specijalnost bio je ovaj koktel od rakije. Mary Meek je uvijek imala kontejner u zamrzivaču i mislim da ih je napravila posebno za mene!

Nisam siguran odakle je došao njen recept, ali izgleda da Brandy Slush ima izvjesnu istoriju u Wisconsinu, osim što originalni recept zahtijeva čaj zajedno s koncentratima naranče i limunade. Mislim da ću se držati ovog soka od ananasa moja želja!

Nisam bio veliki pijanac kad sam bio mlađi, čak ni danas sa svojom ljubavlju prema pravljenju i ispijanju koktela, nikada nisam pretjerao. Mislim da bih ipak mogao s ovim koktelom. Zaista se tako lako spuštaju.

Lako se pravi …sadionice smrznutog soka od naranče, smrznute limunade i smrznutog soka od ananasa kombiniraju se sa šećernom vodom i rakijom, a zatim se cijela stvar zamrzava, a zapravo je pronalaženje prostora za zamrzavanje za količinu koju ovaj recept čini bio najteži korak, ali ustrajao sam i dovoljno za celo leto!

Iako je recept koji sam uključio za koktel od rakije isti onaj koji sam napisao na maloj kartici sa receptima 3X5 koja je sada starinska, ipak sam napravio jednu izmjenu.

Mislio sam da imam limunadu, ali to je bio limeta. Nema problema, to je ono što sam koristio. Zaista više volim limetu, ali ne mogu reći da je ovdje zaista bila velika razlika ili je jedno u redu.

Možda je najteži korak ovog koktela čekanje. Odvojio sam smjesu u dva četvrtasta jela i dok je nekoliko sati kasnije bila ‘ nekako ‘ gotova, mislila sam da je najbolje sljedeći dan, 24 sata je dobar broj za snimanje. Nikada se neće smrznuti zbog alkohola u rakiji, ali želite da sva tečnost bude, pa, bljuzgava. Otuda i naziv.

Uvijek sam pravio Brandy Slush pića kao ljetni koktel, lijepo je imati nešto lako poslužiti ako prijatelji navrate bez planiranja. Mogao sam zamisliti da bi bili jednako odličan koktel tokom praznika ukrašen brusnicom umjesto trešnje maraskino.

Oni su svijetli i lagani i citrusni i apsolutno božanski! Ako vam se čini da je količina prevelika, nema problema, lako je i prepoloviti. Nadam se da ćete isprobati ovo ljeto, i vi ćete biti#8217 zakačeni …Živeli!

Pušio sam cigarete u 20 -im i 8217 -im godinama, naviku koju sam stekao od roditelja i na sreću slijedio više očevim stopama. Jedno pakovanje sedmično, istina je! Uživao sam u cigareti s ledeno hladnom gaziranom vodom ili uz koktel, ali nikada sam po sebi kada sam odlučio prestati nije čak ni toliko teško, što je bila dobra stvar.

Moj bivši muž je pušio više od mene, ali bez obzira na to, kad smo otišli u Indianu, bili smo savršeni. Bez pića, bez pušenja, bez ičega …mogli bismo iskrasti poljubac ili dva, ali bio sam zabrinut da će grom udariti!

Jedne večeri, tokom posjete, nazvala me majka. Nažalost, to nije bila dobra stvar. Moja mama bi popila previše, a zatim bi me pronašla kako bi se žalila na sve, uključujući i mene. Nakon tog razgovora, rekao sam svom tadašnjem dečku da se iskradam vani da popijem cigaretu, pa sam se vratio iza njihove garaže i udovoljio.

Popio sam jednu cigaretu i popio ledeno hladnu koka -kolu iz boce i odmah su zakopali kundak iza garaže koja je bila zasebna zgrada koju je Sotona pokušao prikriti!

Ajme, sljedećeg jutra, kad sam ušao u kuhinju na doručak, ta JEDNA ušljiva ugasila cigareta sjedila je na sredini tanjura gdje sam obično sjedio, valjda čekajući da tražim odrješenje.

Nije uspjelo, pretvarao sam se u neznanje, ali bio sam iziritiran i …hej, jesam li spomenuo da mrzim odlazak u Indianu? Pa kako se, zaboga, to veže za ovaj koktel Barb, gdje je zabavni dio?

Pa, jedina stvar u kojoj sam uživao bio je odlazak s Billom u posjet njegovom najboljem prijatelju i roditeljima#8217. Na sreću bili su normalni. Toliko normalno da je, čak i znajući sklonost porodice Kiebel prema svemu što je zabavno biti grešan, natjerala nas na piće …i meni je trebalo!

Njena specijalnost bio je ovaj koktel od rakije. Mary Meek je uvijek imala kontejner u zamrzivaču i mislim da ih je napravila posebno za mene!

Nisam siguran odakle je došao njen recept, ali izgleda da Brandy Slush ima izvjesnu istoriju u Wisconsinu, osim što originalni recept zahtijeva čaj zajedno s koncentratima naranče i limunade. Mislim da ću se držati ovog soka od ananasa moja želja!

Nisam bio veliki pijanac kad sam bio mlađi, čak ni danas sa svojom ljubavlju prema pravljenju i ispijanju koktela, nikada nisam pretjerao. Mislim da bih ipak mogao s ovim koktelom. Zaista se tako lako spuštaju.

Lako se pravi …sadionice smrznutog soka od naranče, smrznute limunade i smrznutog soka od ananasa kombiniraju se sa šećernom vodom i rakijom, a zatim se cijela stvar zamrzava, a zapravo je pronalaženje prostora za zamrzavanje za količinu koju ovaj recept čini bio najteži korak, ali ustrajao sam i dovoljno za celo leto!

Iako je recept koji sam uključio za koktel od rakije isti onaj koji sam napisao na maloj kartici sa receptima 3X5 koja je sada starinska, napravio sam jednu izmjenu.

Mislio sam da imam limunadu, ali to je bio limeta. Nema problema, to je ono što sam koristio. Zaista više volim limetu, ali ne mogu reći da je ovdje zaista bila velika razlika ili je jedno u redu.

Možda je najteži korak ovog koktela čekanje. Odvojio sam smjesu u dva četvrtasta jela i iako je nekoliko sati kasnije bila ‘ nekako ‘ spremna, mislio sam da je najbolje sljedeći dan, 24 sata je dobar broj za snimanje. Nikada se neće smrznuti zbog alkohola u rakiji, ali želite da sva tečnost bude, pa, bljuzgava. Otuda i naziv.

Uvijek sam pravio Brandy Slush pića kao ljetni koktel, lijepo je imati nešto lako poslužiti ako prijatelji navrate bez planiranja. Mogao sam zamisliti da bi bili jednako odličan koktel tokom praznika ukrašen brusnicom umjesto trešnje maraskino.

Oni su svijetli i lagani i citrusni i apsolutno božanski! Ako vam se količina čini previše, nema problema, lako je i prepoloviti. Nadam se da ćete isprobati ovog ljeta, i vi ćete se#85217 navući …Živeli!

Koktel od rakije

Ovaj koktel od rakije je moj doprinos našem mjesečnom Progressive Eats -u. Na našem grupnom događaju članovi dijele recepte kao dio jelovnika kao da zaista učestvujemo na staromodnoj progresivnoj večeri, na kojoj bi članovi išli od kuće do kuće na različite kurseve.

Iako je ovog mjeseca tema inspirisana Memorijalnim danom, mislio sam da ću podijeliti ovaj staromodni, ali uvijek u stilu koktel, onaj koji sam prvi put popio preko vikenda 4. jula prije mnogo mjeseci.

Moj bivši muž je iz Indiane i iako to tada nisam mogla reći, mogu i sada. Mrzila sam posjećivati ​​njegovu porodicu. Oni su bili pleme vjerskih fundamentalista i na svakom sam se putovanju osjećao kao Sotona. Uživao sam u koktelu, nosio sam kratke suknje, OMG čak sam stavljao stvari na kosu kako bih postala plava.

Popio sam jednu cigaretu i popio ledeno hladnu koka -kolu iz boce i odmah su zakopali opušak iza garaže koja je bila zasebna zgrada koju je Sotona pokušao prikriti!

Ajme, sljedećeg jutra, kad sam ušao u kuhinju na doručak, ta JEDNA ušljiva ugasila cigareta sjedila je na sredini tanjura gdje sam obično sjedio, valjda čekajući da tražim odrješenje.

It didn’t work, I feigned ignorance but I was irritated and…hey, did I mention I hated going to Indiana? So how on earth does that tie into this cocktail Barb, where’s the fun part?

Well, the one thing I did enjoy was going with Bill to visit his best friend and his best friend’s parents. Luckily they were normal. So normal that even knowing the Kiebel family’s proclivity for everything fun being sinful, she made us drinks…and I needed one!

Her specialty was this Brandy Slush Cocktail. Mary Meek always had a container in the freezer and I think she made them especially for me!

I’m not sure where her recipe came from but it appears that the Brandy Slush has some history in Wisconsin except that the original recipe calls for tea along with the orange and lemonade concentrates. I think I’ll stick with this one pineapple juice is my preference!

I was not a big drinker when I was younger, even today with my love of both making and drinking cocktails, I never over-imbibe. I think I could with this cocktail though. They really do go down so easy.

Easy to make too…containers of frozen orange juice, frozen lemonade and frozen pineapple juice are combined with sugar water and brandy and then the whole thing is frozen actually finding freezer space for the quantity this recipe makes was the hardest step but I persevered and have enough for all summer!

While the recipe I’ve included for the Brandy Slush Cocktail is the very same one that I have written on a little 3X5 recipe card that is now an antique, I did make one modification.

I thought I had lemonade but it was limeade. No problem, it’s what I used. I actually love limeade better but I can’t say it really made a big difference here either one is fine.

Maybe the most difficult step of this cocktail is the waiting. I separated the mixture into two square dishes and while it was ‘sort of ‘ ready several hours later, I thought it best the next day, 24 hours is a good number to shoot for. It will never freeze firm because of the alcohol in the brandy but you do want all of the liquid to be, well, slushy. Otuda i naziv.

I’ve always made Brandy Slush drinks as a summer cocktail it is nice to have something easy to serve if friends drop by without planning. I could imagine though that they would be an equally great cocktail over the holidays garnish with a cranberry in lieu of the maraschino cherry.

They are bright and light and citrusy and absolutely divine! If the quantity seems way too much, no problem, it’s easy to cut in half too. I hope you try it this summer, you’ll be hooked too…Cheers!

Brandy Slush Cocktail

This Brandy Slush Cocktail is my contribution to our monthly Progressive Eats. Our group event has members sharing recipes as part of a menu as if we were actually participating in an old fashioned Progressive dinner, where members would go house to house for different courses.

While this month the theme is inspired by Memorial Day, I thought I would share this old fashioned yet always in style cocktail, one that I first had over a 4th of July weekend many moons ago.

My ex-husband is from Indiana and while I couldn’t say it then, I can now. I hated going to visit his family. They were a tribe of religious fundamentalists and I felt like Satan on every trip. I enjoyed a cocktail, I wore short skirts, OMG I even put stuff on my hair to make it blonder.

They were ALWAYS trying to save me as if making us go to church and loading on the guilt would ever be something that a young woman/person would ever look at and say, yep…that’s what I want!

I used to smoke cigarettes in my 20’s, a habit I picked up from my parents and luckily followed more in my dad’s footsteps. One pack a week, it’s true! I enjoyed a cigarette with an ice cold soda or with a cocktail but never by itself when I decided to quit it wasn’t even that difficult, which was a good thing.

My ex-husband smoked more than I did but no matter, when we went to Indiana, we were perfect. No drinking, no smoking, no nothing…we might sneak a kiss or two but I was worried lightning would strike!

One evening, while visiting there, my mother called me. Sadly that was not a good thing…my mom would drink too much and then track me down to complain about everything, including me. After that conversation, I told my then boyfriend, I’m sneaking outside to have a cigarette and I went back beyond their garage and indulged.

I had my one cigarette and drank an ice cold Coke from a bottle and them promptly buried the butt behind the garage that was a separate building Satan trying to cover her tracks!

Ahem, the next morning, when I came into the kitchen for breakfast, that ONE lousy stubbed out cigarette was sitting smack dab in the middle of the plate where I usually sat, I guess waiting for me to ask for absolution.
