Five Spring Treats to Make Right Now

Budweiser Fruit Punch (yield: 1 pint)

This is inspired by a favorite party drink from college. We would pop open a Budweiser and shake it up with a packet of Kool-Aid. This is a bit more elegant than our dorm room version, but it’s the same basic idea of mixing sweetness with starch.

1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup Budweiser
2 tablespoons simple syrup*
squeeze of lemon juice

Combine pomegranate juice, orange juice and beer. Stir in simple syrup and finish with a squeeze of lemon. Add ice and garnish with orange slices.

*Simple Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water

In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar has dissolved and you are left with simple syrup.

    these recipes looks delicious. Guinness float with coffee ice cream and banana bacon recipe are just perfect. I vote for them.
