Lynlass, in a comment on the post below entitled "The Discipline Dynamic," asked for these recipes and here they are...... Sugar-Free/Non-Alcoholic Mocktail Recipes:
S/F - N/A Kahlua
11 oz can French Roast coffee, ground
5 cups Splenda
5 cups hot water
2 tbsp. real Vanilla
Pour the coffee and hot water into a large bowl and let the coffee steep for at least 1 hour. Strain the coffee through a coffee filter or cheesecloth. Add vanilla and Splenda to coffee.
I am trying to get another round out of the same coffee grounds. I have the grounds and tap water in a ziplock bag, sitting in a large bowl in the fridge. Since it has been sitting overnight, I think I have a strong enough coffee for the 2nd round.
S/F - N/A Peppermint Schnapps
4 cups Splenda
3 cups water
1 bottle Peppermint Extract
a few dashes of blue food coloring
Mix all 4 ingredients together and chill. Serve over ice. The food coloring can be whatever color you want, we just like the blue.
S/F - N/A Mockarita (I concocted this one for him tonight to have something to hold onto and sip while grilling out:)
3/4 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cups lime juice
2 cups Splenda
20 ounces Orange Crystal Light
Mix all 4 ingredients together and serve on the rocks or pour some in a blender with ice and make a frozen Mockarita. We do not use salt, since we do low-sodium diets, but could easily serve in a salt-rimmed glass. If you wanted a berry Mockarita, add 2 oz of your favorite berry puree per glass. (we use the Orange Crystal Light to reduce the amount of fruit sugar, if you are not on a sugar-free diet, you can substitute it with 1 cup orange juice.)
