Mint Juleps

Rating: Unrated
Sit on the front porch in your rocking chair on a sultry afternoon and sip on one or two of these. The proper way to serve a mint julep is in a frozen silver goblet, but you can use glasses instead--just use the most elegant ones you have! You can make the syrup ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for whenever the julep mood strikes you.

Jewel's Watermelon Margaritas

This is the non-frozen version of my watermelon margaritas. These are so amazing and refreshing on hot summer days. To make a virgin version, omit the tequila and use a lemon-lime soda.

Vintage Lemonade

In the 1800's this is how people made lemonade--you can do it too! It's not that difficult, and tastes wonderful!
