What are some good non-alcoholic, not carbonated, but fancy drinks!?
I'm in charge of drinks for a fancy dinner, but would like them to not have carbonation and I need them to be non-alcoholic!. Any ideas or recipes would be very helpful!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
Welch's white grape juice mixed with lemon seltzer water tastes amazingly like champagne!. Looks like it, too!. Better for toasting than "sparkling cider"!. Though that's carbonated !.
Bloody Marys sans the alcohol are just as tasty and have enough ingredients not to be boring !.
Virgin daiquiris are popular (typical being regular margarita and strawberry)!. In a salt or sugar rimmed glass, they look like the real thing, too!. Serve over ice, not blended, for a more grown-up feel !.
Virgin cosmos are also good- cranberry and lime juice!. They're pretty in a glass as well !.
A good concotion is: some 1/4 inch slices of fresh ginger, cold water (I use seltzer but if you don't want carbonation, plain is probably fine), and Rose's Sweetened Lime Juice to taste!. It's a fresh gingery lime drink!. If you can soak the ginger in the water in the fridge over night for a stronger ginger flavor!. Add sweetened lime juice to taste!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Iced Strawberry Tea http://mikoskitchen!.blogspot!.com/2008/12!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
You can make tropical flavored iced tea!. You need 2 black tea bags and 3 mango/peach flavored tea bags!. You brew the bags in a small saucepan with about 2 cups of water on your stove and let them boil for a few minutes you then add the tea mixture into a large pitcher with water mix and you don't even need sweeten it because it tastes fruity!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
grape juice! it looks like wine, and makes younger kids feel grown up!.
or, a non alcoholic sangria!.
1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup cranberry juice
1/2 pineapple juice(optional)
cut up fruit [apples,pears,strawberries] !small pieces!
3/4 cup ginger ale or sprite or 7up !.
IT IS SUPER GOOD!
Any of the fruity type drinks can be made with everything but the alcohol and most don't taste that different without it!. I love "nada" coladas myself!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
Kosher grape juice is a good start!. It is, however, concentrated and a bit sweet!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
