Magic in the Lemonade

carribean-punchMy niece phoned me last week for a recipe of my lemonade.  She was planning a summer party for a group of 35 and she wanted my magic lemonade recipe.  According to her, there’s something very special about my lemonade, and she’s not quite sure what it was.

The magic in my lemonade is very simple.  Just use any lemonade frozen concentrate or fresh squeezed lemonade drink and add a few dash of Angostura aromatic bitters -  a highly concentrated fruit and beverage flavoring.  Blended with natural herbs and spices, the flavoring is based on a  secret formula concoted by a German medical doctor in the 1800′s.  Distilled in Trinidad, Angostura Bitters  can be found in the baking section of most big supermarkets.  (By the way, this is not an advertisement).

  1. Hmmm… I never heard of such thing but I’ll try to see around here and see how it goes.

    Your mix must be really great tasting. Hope I am near your place to try it myself. :)

  2. I love good lemonade and made a note to buy and try some Angostura Bitters, which I’ve never heard of. Can hardly wait. Nothing is more refreshing on a hot day.

    Thanks for the tip.
