This is an easy drink to make as there are no set amounts of each ingredient.  Just mix it up the way you like it and enjoy a refreshing drink for any time of the day! This drink is especially enjoyable during the heat of summer ’cause it is guaranteed to cool ya down right good!

Whiskey Sour Punch

  • 1/2 small can frozen orange juice
  • 1 small can frozen lemonade
  • 1/2-1/5 of Bourbon
  • 2 liters of Sprite
  • cut slices of lemons & oranges

Mix all together in a punch bowl. Use bourbon at your own discretion. I like to freeze a mold of water with lemons, oranges and cherries in it for the punch bowl.

Best Hot Chocolate

September 6, 2010 Comments off


  • 1 pint milk
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite hot chocolate powder
  • A handful of marshmallows

Firstly, put a pan of milk on to the heat. Bring to a simmer, not a boil, and while it’s heating, put a tablespoon of chocolate powder into each mug. Add a little warmish milk from the pan to each mug, you just need enough to dissolve the chocolate powder.

At this point, plonk a few marshmallows into each mug. When the milk is at a simmer, carefully pour it into a plastic jug or flask. I normally do this over a sink as I always end up spilling a bit (the trick is to have a big enough jug or flask so the milk only half fills it: you need the extra space for shaking and frothing).

Screw the lid on tightly, place a cloth over the lid for safety, and shake hard for a minute. Remove the lid, minding the steam, and pour into your mugs. A little stir and you can slurp your way to heaven!
