(Another Guest Post From Aames)
I am, as I write this, enjoying a beverage called "The Sunday Morning Strengthener." In my days as a pretentious undergraduate in Ann Arbor, I hosted a recurring Sunday morning party at which I served the following beverage, now re-named:
THE ANN ARBOR AREA HORSE SHOW STRENGTHENER
2 two-litre thingies of Schweppes Lemonade (or Sprite)
1 roma tomato (trust me)
1 punch bowl (Grandma has one)
And, if you are old enough, either Pimm's no.1, or Chardonnay-- two buck Chuck is fine
Fill the punch bowl with the lemonade or Sprite, and a bit of ice
Scrape the innards out of both the tomato and the cucumber, and cut into roughly quarter-inch bits
Cut up the lemons, also.
Float the chopped bits in the punch bowl, and wait for the magic to happen. Now is also the time to add the Grown-Up ingredients (Pimm's).
Once the flavors have blended, decant into glasses as the need arises.
This is a wonderfully thirst-quenching alternative to plain water or sports drinks on show day. The grown-up version is good, again only if you're old enough, after the show.
