Going Virgin Home Business Matchup

With the holiday season just around the corner, thought I'll post some recipes for non-alcoholic drinks (that usually contains alcohol) for those who are planning to have a party and wouldn't want to serve alcoholic drinks.

I had my first virgin sangria at a new years' party last year. Mark and Elizabeth was so nice to made us some virgin sangria since they know that Mr Frankie and I do no consume alcohol. And I have to say it's super delicious. It's just so easy to make!

Peel the skin of 1 orange into one long spiral.
Repeat with a lemon.
Fill a large pitcher with ice.
Add 1 28-oz bottle of white grape juice, 1 32-oz bottle of seltzer, the juice of the orange and the lemon, and the orange and lemon zest spirals.
Stir well.
Pour into wineglasses and garnish each with a slice of lime.
Serves 8.

Another of my favourite is the raspberry daquiris. This yummy drinks would surely qunche your thirst on a hot sunny day.

Raspberry daiquiris are a cool and fruity concoction designed to be delicious and refreshing on a hot summer day. Ice and fruit are blended together in this festive ruby-colored drink. Follow these steps to make a non-alcoholic raspberry daiquiri.

2. Add 2 ounces of apple juice to the blender.

4. Add 1 teaspoon of castor sugar to the blender.
5. Add 1/2 of an ounce of raspberry syrup.
6. Blend the ingredients with a handful of crushed ice, then serve in a goblet glass.

Now this is Mr Frankie's favourite. A virgin Singapore sling is a nonalcoholic cousin of the world-famous Singapore sling, which uses cherry brandy instead of cherry juice. This recipe makes one serving.
