Winter Red Sangria

I fill a large dispenser or carafe with sangria and let people fill up on this fruity punch as needed! Using one with a spout like this one from Home Depot makes for easy refills!

Double Chocolate Malt Milkshake

Double Chocolate Malt Milkshake

Sometimes you just need an old classic. I’ve been watching a lot of the show Riverdale lately – the dark version of Archie comics. If you haven’t watched it yet then you definitely have to start! On the show they drink lots of milkshakes at the local shake shop and that inspired me to create this double chocolate malt shake. I add cocoa powder to enhance the chocolate flavor and top it with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, mint leaves and a cherry on top!

Near my hometown in New Jersey there’s an ice cream shop, Taylor’s Ice Cream Shop, and it has the best chocolate malt milkshakes, shakes that have the perfect balance of chocolate ice cream and malt powder, making them taste just like a chocolate whopper. Taylor’s does it just right because if the balance is off then you can’t taste the malt powder (my favorite part). My friend and I used to stop all the time on hot summer days and we would always get the same thing – every single time. Those chocolate shakes were just too good to pass up and we had no need to branch out into other flavors! A few years ago a fire almost burned the place down, but luckily they were able to rebuild and reopen before the following summer.

 

Ingredients:

1 cup whole milk

¼ cup malted milk powder

3 cups chocolate ice cream

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

¼ cup chocolate syrup

Whipped cream, for serving

6 mint leaves

6 maraschino cherries

 

Instructions:

Add the milk, malted milk powder, chocolate ice cream and cocoa powder to a blender. Blend until smooth.

Drizzle the chocolate syrup on the sides of 2 (12-ounce) glasses. Divide the milkshakes among the glasses then top with whipped cream, mint leaves and maraschino cherries.

 

Serves 2.

This fun cocktail is served as a “bucket” -- a large batch of a cocktail in a non-traditional container: a hollowed out watermelon!

Mint Mojito Iced Coffee

The muddled mint and sugar in this drink is reminiscent of a mojito cocktail – except the rum is subbed with coffee for an energizing beverage to start the morning or as an afternoon pick me up.

Paloma Sangria

Starting with a traditional Paloma, a drink made from tequila, grapefruit juice or grapefruit soda, this cocktail takes it one step further and adds fresh citrus and white wine.
