Wonderfully versatile, this gift is seasoned for both sipping and sniffing. When mixed with fruit juices, it's a delicious winter warmer-upper. Boiled in water, it makes a "scentsational" potpourri that will add a heavenly fragrance to the whole house!
"I pour this pretty pink beverage over ice to make a refreshing breakfast drink," recommends Connie Cooper of Charleston, Illinois. The tartness from the grapefruit juice is sure to wake up your taste buds.
Pretty and refreshing, this flavored iced tea was well-received at the Victorian-theme shower. To vary the taste, simply mix in a different fruit juice or blend than the one called for in my recipe.

A delightful blend of four fruit juices gives this pleasant punch its cool character, while ginger ale adds the quenching fizz. For our theme party, I looked to the Olympics' history to come up with an appropriate name for this modern-day beverage.

This pink cooler is deliciously thirst-quenching on a warm day. Seeing its color, folks guess it might be pink lemonade. They're pleasantly surprised to discover the bubbly blend includes cranberry, pineapple, orange and lemon juices.

To round out the meal, she serves glasses of Frosty Fruit Drink. "Since you just toss everything into blender, these smooth thick shakes are ready in minutes," Jo assures. "They're like a beverage and dessert in one."
We offer this fruity beverage to guests to add a festive touch to holiday gatherings. It pours up frothy, then separates into a dark pink base with a light foamy top. A slightly tart drink, it's wonderful with home-baked cookies.
