Today, we are doing things differently. With all those great recipes and food, and chocolate, we will need something to wash it down with and so my two favourite drinks today are: Mauby and Calypso Drink.
2 cups water
1 piece cinnamon
2 cups brown sugar
4 pieces mauby bark (2` long)
A few seeds or sprig of aniseed aromatic bitters
Put water, cinnamon, sugar, mauby bark and aniseed in a pot and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain. When serving, add water to desired strength and more sugar if nnecessary. Serve with ice and a few dashes of bitters.
2 cups grapefruit juice
1 pack strawberry flavoured Kool Aid
2 cups fruit punch
1 cup granulated sugar
3-4 cups water
Combine grapefruit juice, Kool Aid, fruit punch, sugar and water; stir until is dissolved. Add ice cubes and serve very cold.
