This Dragon’s Blood Punch made with Hawaiian Punch and 7-up is quite delicious.  While it is perfect for Halloween with its deep blood  red color, I think this may end up being a year-round party drink for us.

St. Patrick’s Day Green Punch Recipe (Non-Alcoholic)

St. Patrick’s Day Green Punch Recipe (non-alcoholic)

To carry out the “Green” theme of St. Patrick’s Day, you can try this easy non-alcoholic St. Patrick’s Day Green Punch Recipe for your St. Paddy’s party or to accompany your traditional Irish meal in a non-traditional way. As-is the punch already has a nice light green color thanks to the lime juice concentrate and the sherbet, but if you want it to be REALLY green, you can always add a few drops of green food coloring.

St. Patrick’s Day Green Punch Recipe

3 cups lemon-lime soda (7-up, Sprite, etc)
6 oz can frozen lime juice concentrate
1 quart lime sherbet, softened

In a large punch bowl mix these ingredients along with three 6 oz cans full of water. Mix well until the sherbet is fully dissolved.

Blueberry Muffin Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie recipe is perfect for when you’re craving a big fatty muffin, but want to opt for something more healthy, yet still delicious.  Since it uses oats, it’s nice and filling.  (NOTE: I know not everyone is crazy about oats in a smoothie because it gives it a different texture, but I like it!)

1/3 cup frozen blueberries*
1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sugar (or honey))
1 cup milk

Place all in a blender and blend until smooth.

*If using fresh blueberries, you will want to add a bit of ice and decrease the milk to compensate for the ice.

Friendship Tea or "Russian Tea" Drink Mix Recipe

When I was little, my Grandma used to make this drink mix, which she called “Russian Tea”. I had almost forgotten about it until I recently got an e-mail from a local grocery chain, Coborn’s, with a recipe called Friendship Tea. Reading the ingredient list, I realized that it was basically the same Russian Tea recipe. This is a great recipe for a tasty warm drink on a cold day. You can package the mix in decorative jars to give as an easy but thoughtful gift.

1 Cup Tang or other Orange Flavored Drink Mix
1 Cup Powdered Lemonade Mix
1/2 Cup Instant Tea
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground Cloves

Mix all ingredients together and store in a tightly sealed jar or container.  To make the tea, stir 1 tablespoon of mix into 1 cup of hot water.
