If your dealing with chocolate and dessert go with Grand Marnier.

Didn't have these tonight. I had these when I was in Brandon Manitoba last week. Each one was at least 20 oz.

Last Tuesday I had this:

Damn Mel, those are a couple of fine looking plates of protein packed Prime Rib. Look to be cooked perfect in my book.

I'm sure you enjoyed them! smile

I love lemonaid. It packs big flavour that cannot be missed by those of us who's taste buds are in their sunset years. It has enough pucker to make you sit up and take notice, wetting the driest mouth. I balances sweet and tart without sacrificing flavour.

My favourite is still fresh lemons, sugar, soda water and lots of ice cubes. A shot of gin doesn't hurt either.

I caught on to the idea of playing with the flavour at one of those fresh lemonaid stands where they also put a half of a squeezed lemon in your drink, probably to reduce the volume. It just adds to the flavour.

My current go to lemonaid is a blend of convenience and enhancement. I start with a can of frozen concentrate for which I close to double the water added and then squeeze in a lime, dropping in half of the squeezed lime.

You need to be careful with limes. If you leave the rind in over night, the drink starts to bite back and the lime overpowers. 4 hours is about right.

Lemon rind is a different story. The other day I forgot and left it in for a day. The result was a very concentrated lemon flavour without the bite of bitterness and no overpowering sourness.

Just finished making a jug so I have some to take with me golfing tomorrow.

You definitely need some lemon oil in lemonade -- and that comes from the zest.

If you want to be really fancy, first scrub and wash the lemons in the sink. Then slice off very thin slivers of skin -- just the yellow, no white. Get all the zest from each lemon you're using.

Next, put the zest into a bowl and pour all the sugar from your recipe over it. Mix it around to make sure the zest is well coated and let it sit for about an hour. During that time, the sugar will pull the oils out of the zest and turn a bit syrupy.

Juice the lemons as usual.

Boil some water and pour it over the sugar-zest mixture, making sure it's fully covered. This will help dissolve the sugar and get the rest of the flavor from the zest. Let it steep/dissolve for at least 10 minutes.

Now combine everything in your serving container with lots of ice, making sure to pour the zest syrup through a sieve. Add cold water to taste.

Where do you guys find the time to do these things? I just open a bottle of beer or have a glass of water and have an extra half hour in my day!

Thanks for the kind words Dakkon. laugh

If any of our Quebec members happen to know where I could find something like this near Shawinigan, let me know. I'm heading that way next week.

Say hi to Jean for me. Just remember though, don't let him get hold of your throat.

Peter. I'll give that a try sometime soon.
