[December 07, 2012]  Recipes for alcohol-free drinks:

Alotta Colada

8 1/2 ounces cream of coconut

3 cups chilled pineapple juice

12 ounces chilled ginger ale

In small punch bowl, stir together the cream of coconut and pineapple juice until well mixed. Stir ginger ale in gently and serve immediately.

4 ounces soda

Pour the apple juice into an old-fashioned glass filled previously with three to five ice cubes and add the soda. Stir before you serve. You can mix the juice and the soda 50-50 percent, too, but it delivers energy faster and is even healthier this way.

1/2 packet sweetener

2 ounces tomato juice

2 ounces beef bouillon

1/4 ounce lemon juice
