You will need:
– Some tall glasses (I’ve used these pretty ones, but you can just use any large drinking glasses. Clear glass is best.)
– 7-Up or some other lemon lime soda
– Cherry grenadine
– 1 orange
– Maraschino cherries
– Little toothpick swords (you can use regular toothpicks in a pinch)
– Miniature umbrellas, optional
The preparation for this is pretty quick and simple. First, you’ll want to make sure your 7-Up is nice and cold. Next, thinly slice the orange like so. Try and get the pieces as thin as you can without tearing the pieces.
For the oranges, you can use a whole round piece or you can cut each slice in half. If you’re doing halves, cut one slit through the flesh up to the rind on the half piece. Twist the orange halves, then skewer them through the rind with a toothpick sword. Then stick a couple of cherries on the sword beneath the rind, to hold it in place and for extra decor.
Another non-alcoholic cocktail, similar to this one, is the Roy Rogers; it’s made exactly the same way, but with Coke instead of lemon-lime soda.
Enjoy! Again, if you make this, feel free to send along any pictures or comments; I’d love to hear all about it. 🙂
Until next week!
REMINDER: If you want to sponsor the project for this weekend, let me know soon so that I can have it ready for you. My next project, due to be made this coming Saturday, is Sachertorte. Send me an email if you’d like to taste it. 🙂
