Orange Juice Cocktail
2c. orange juice
2T. lemon juice
Ginger ale (iced)
Mix sugar, orange juice and lemon juice and freeze to a mush.
When ready to serve, half fill fruit juice glasses with frozen mixture. Open a bottle of Ginger ale and pour over the frozen fruit juice, filling the glasses. Serve immediately as the first course for luncheon or dinner. It may be served in the living room.
Both Rebecca and I thought this would be a terrific substitute for dessert, on a hot humid day etc. (I was imagining a barbecue :D) It's like a float with, the pop and how the frozen orange juice rises to the top.
Ginger ale is good, but I'm curious to try club soda or sprite? I imagine the club soda might need more sweetening. Going along on that train of thought, wouldn't substituting the orange juice with grape be good?! There are many possibilities.
I think this cocktail is better served to small groups, since the frozen juice melts quickly.
You don't need to worry about it being a mush when you are ready to serve. I let it freeze for most the day. The juice was solid when I took it out, all I had to do was scrape it with a fork, It wasn't difficult! The juice could probably be frozen for a week or more, just take it out when ready.
