Foamy Black Bug Juice
Sweet, tasty, fragrant. Spicy fragrance, not icky stinky. And just gross enough in a clear glass. Make this right before serving for maximum foam. You can spike it with ETOH (alcohol) for the adults if you like.
|serves 6||metric measures|
|1 tablespoon honey||15 ml|
|1 teaspoon ground cinnamon||1 gm|
|2 tablespoons dark raisins||15 gm|
|1 cup grape juice concentrate||240 ml|
|1/3 cup orange juice concentrate||80 ml|
|5 cups sparkling water||1.200 liters|
In a small bowl, stir cinnamon into the honey. Drizzle honey mixture around the inside rim of the glass. You will have sticky fingers if it gets on the outside. And that isn’t always a bad thing.
Add a few raisins to each glass.
Carefully add juice concentrates to a tall glass pitcher. Try to be neat and not to get it on the side of the pitcher. Or be messy, it just adds to the eeewww factor.
Add the sparking water and watch it foam.
Pour into prepared glasses. Garnish with lots of foam. It will sparkle in your nose.
Stay tuned for the entree.
