Tasteful Tuesday: Cranberry Pineapple Punch

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

CranberriesThis punch is perfect for early fall when the temperatures are still mild (or unseasonably hot), as well as the holidays when cranberries are in everyone’s pantries. A special ingredient adds more delicious flavor to the beverage, and it can easily be adapted for the addition of rum, vodka or other alcohol.

What You’ll Need:

  • Crushed ice
  • 4 cups cranberry juice
  • 4 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar*
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 liter cranberry ginger ale

Directions:

  1. Fill a large punch bowl about 1/4 full of ice. Add the juices and, if desired, the granulated sugar. Stir until the sugar is combined, or go to step 2.
  2. Add almond extract, ginger ale, and if desired, your choice of alcohol. Stir well and serve!

*for a less sweet drink, omit the sugar

Tasteful Tuesday: Blueberry-Banana Milkshake

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

A milkshake recipe in September? If you are here in New England you know that we are still looking for relief from the mugginess and heat, so a cool treat like this one is a must-have. If you can still find them, we recommend using fresh blueberries, but if you opt for frozen blueberries just keep in mind you may need to alter the amount of ice cream and/or milk (this recipe makes 1 serving).

What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup whole blueberries
  • 1/4 medium banana
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Place ice cream and milk into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until fully incorporated. Pour into a chilled glass and enjoy!
