Drink Feista

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.

Mauby

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.

Calypso Drink

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.
