sip sip sip

I am a drinker...........

I should just leave that statement alone and end for the day, but goodness, that would mean the whole day I would wander around regretting that I didn't share............and since I seem to be adult conversation deprived, I type away and pretend I am having conversations.
I am a drinker........I always seem to have some sort of liquid going. I am a diet Coke drinker and if I can get the decaffienated gold can, then even better. I am into the Crystal Lite drinks too......especially the teas. Sadly I do have a problem with acid juice, lemonade, and limeade. At one point in my life I was totally addicted to grapefruit juice.....I mean I was drinking that liquid like crazy..........ended up with some severe problems in the stomach sadly I have to watch the acid drinks. I Spearfish SD, the second or maybe it is the third week-end of the month, they have this wonderful arts and crafts show in the there is a booth that makes this to die for lemon and lime guessed it, the Rock of Gilbraltor just caves in and drinks that limeade like there is no tomorrow........well I usually have two, one there and one to go home on.............a very special treat for me.
I have no idea why I am writing this liquid saga................guess because I saw the graphic of the peach drink and it just looked yum-dilly-ious. So I looked up peach spritzer and the two sites that I looked on didn't have a particular recipe for peach spritzer, just fruit spritzers in general here it is


1 can unsweetened frozen juice concentrateClub soda
Mix frozen juice concentrate according to directions on the can, substituting club soda for water.

I am trying and doing a much better job of it too, of drinking water. I always try to have a container of water in the car when I drive and of course when I go to the gym I take water with me..............I am tryingto make it the drink of choice when I am beading too, just fill a glass up with a kazillion ice cubes and water and bead I think that would give me an "atta girl" mark in the good column..........don't you?

I've talked about my coffee know pretend grown-up coffee.
The one that I have 90% creamer, 2 artificial sweetner packets, and 8%'s good. My grandchildren like it and all of thier parents think that I have ruined them for life............shoot, my Da did it to me, so I truly believe that I should and have introduced them to this wonderful drink.
No rhyme or reason for this particular topic today.........just rambling on and on and on and on.............

Ms. Mary Ellen,
My momma is a peach lover so one summer I looked around the net and found these recipes. We have made a couple of them and they sure were yummy. I just thought I would pass them along.

Peach Cooler
Cold milk- 2 cups
Frozen unsweetened sliced peaches- 1 cup
Frozen orange juice concentrate- 2 tablespoons
Honey- 2 tablespoons
Fresh mint (Optional)
Put all ingredients in blender container. And blend at high speed until it becomes smooth and frothy. Serve immediately garnished with mint.

Peach Magnifico recipe
2 oz peach juice
1 oz mango juice
4 oz dry ginger ale
Pour ingredients into an ice-filled wine glass. Garnish with fruit, and serve.

Mango-Peach Fizz
1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and cubed (1 1/2 cups)
1 large ripe peach, peeled, pitted, and cubed (1 cup)
1/2 cup peach nector
1 tablespoon(s) sugar
peach-flavored seltzer
Cold club soda, or seltzer

In a blender, puree mango, peach, nector, and sugar (adding more sugar if puree is too tart). Puree can be made up to 1 day ahead and refrigerated.
For each fizz, fill tall glasses with ice cubes. Pour 2 tbsp each puree and peach-flavored seltzer into each glass and top with cold club soda, or seltzer.
