Orange Blossom
There’s no better way to impress your woman than offering her a glass of the very elegant Orange blossom. The look of the drink will speak of the effort you put into it (which only you know is next to nothing!).
Ingredients:
3 cups orange juice
6 tbsp vanilla ice cream
6 tbsp orange or strawberry crush
¾ bottle soda
Ice cubes

Preparation:
Blend orange juice, ice cream and the crush for a few seconds. Fill 1/3 glass with ice cubes or crushed ice. Pour the blended drink. Pierce the stirrer stick with orange slice and cherry or place a slit orange on the glass rim to garnish.

Mojito
If you plan to throw a Havana theme party, there can be nothing better than a Mojito to set the right mood.
Ingredients:
1 shot rum
Soda
4 mint leaves
1 lime
1 tbs sugar

Preparation: Put mint leaves into a tall glass and squeeze the lime juice over them. Add the powdered sugar and pour rum. Stir it as you add soda according to your taste. A few mint sprigs will take care of the dressing.

Apple Martini
No points for guessing — you need apples for this. Not the real fruit, but sour apple liqueur ( a mix of sweet and sour green apples, easily available in the market). You can also use apple juice or puree.

Ingredients:
1 shot vodka
1 & 1/2 tsp sour apple liqueur/apple juice
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Apple slice for garnish

Preparation: Pour ingredients into long mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Garnish with a slice of apple and your drink
is ready.

Mint Crush
This mocktail will patch up your Vitamin C deficiency!
Ingredients:
Fresh mint leaves
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 bottle of aerated lime drink [e.g.
Limca or Sprite]
Dash of salt and
pepper
Ice cubes
Preparation:
Mix all the ingredients together and
stir well. Garnish the glass with a mint sprig and a lemon slice. Your drink is ready.
