Summer Mocktail ~ Summer Sunrise

There are few things prettier than a drink in a beautiful glass.  But let's face facts.  Drinking may be popular, but it's not always the best choice.  Personally, I don't drink alcohol, but that doesn't mean that I can't enjoy a mixed beverage.

Over the next weeks, you'll find a new mixed drink recipe--a MOCKTAIL recipe--right here on Mondays.

I hope that you enjoy these recipes because you can rest assure I did and do and will continue to and...well, you get the picture.

Summer Sunrise
Makes about 5 servings

This particular drink would be
nice at a bunch or with breakfast, but it's delicious anytime.

1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup Country Time lemonade
1/4 cup grapefruit juice
1 cup ice
1/2 cup of ginger ale or 7Up for each glass
Grapefruit slices for garnish
Mint leaves for garnish (optional)

In a blender, blend the pineapple juice, orange juice, lemonade mix, grapefruit juice, and ice until frothy.  Make sure that all of the ice blends in.  This is determine how strong the lemonade taste will be.  Before you pour the juice mix into a tall glass add 1/2 cup of ginger ale or 7Up to each 12 oz. glass.  This gives ya just a little bit of tingle.  Garnish with grapefruit slices and mint.  The grapefruit slices will sink to the bottom.  I love that part.

I look forward to "seeing" you back here next Monday for another Mocktail Mixer.
