One on the most refreshing and healthiest drinks out there! This is a must for all hot summer houses. Anybody of any age can try it! Children love it, teenagers crave for it, and adults are enchanted by it!

It’s very easy to do, and very satisfying once you’ve tried it. A lot ofbeverage comes out, so you must share with friends, family, or even make a stand on the side-walk giving free drinks to hot, sweaty, thirsty people walking by! You’ll make their day for sure!

Well, enough chit-chat, give us the recipe! Most of you must be thinking… alright alright..
By the way, Llet merengada is in catalan.

 

Llet Merengada

Ingredients:

1 liter of milk

150 grams of sugar

the skin of one or two lemons

2 cinnamon sticks

2 egg whites

powderd cinamon

 

Preparation:

Heat the milk with the sugar, cinnamon sticks and lemon peel which has been cleaned before hand… As it starts heating up, never stop stirring the mixture, slowly and clock-wise. Remove any cream that may be formed. Whenever it starts boiling, remove it from the heater.

We prepare the meringue by beating the egg whites until fulffy and then we add a tablespoon of white sugar. We add it to the mixture, slowly and a stirring it with love. Once it’s all stirred in, you put it in the fridge and wait for it to cool.

 

Once it’s cool, you enjoy!

That’s it folks!

 

It’s a very easy recipe that everyone enjoys and it’s very very healthy. I hope you all try it. By the way, use good quality milk, like skimmed milk. And don’t remove the cinnamon sticks.

 

See you all soon! Remember if you want any recipe, or tips on how to prepare a special ocasion, just say the word!

 

The Mojito

People form the united states, if you’re under 21, you can’t try this 😉

This is a recipe for all of those who can drink alcohol! And for those who cant, just don’t pour in any Bacardi! It’s great for summer because mint gives a very refreshing feel!

Drink with caution! And don’t drive afterwards!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • 3 leaves mint
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • club soda

Instructions

In a smallish Collins glass, muddle lime juice with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon superfine sugar.* Add the few mint leaves, mushing them against the side of the glass. Fill glass 2/3 with cracked ice and pour in the rum.** Pitch in the squeezed-out lime shell and top off with club soda or seltzer. Serve with a stirring rod.

This one responds well to playing around, as long as you keep it within limits. There are some who like to replace the sugar with 2 teaspoons cane syrup; it’s hard to find here, but you can make a pretty good substitute by bringing a cup of Demerara sugar (“Sugar in the Raw” works) to a gentle boil with 1/2 cup water; keep refrigerated. In either case, it adds a nice mellowness to the thing. Some — cocktail historian and restaurant critic William Grimes, for one — prefer their mojitos to be Draques, sin fizz. That’s good, too. We like ours with the fizz, though, but also with a tablespoon of 151-proof Demerara rum floated on top. Another wrinkle has to do with the mint. The Cuban species, “yerba buena,” is different from the standard U.S. spearmint; supposedly, the Cuban stuff is available. Worth keeping an eye out for.

* Depending on how sweet you like ’em; we like ours a bit tart.

** Bacardi is, of course, traditional; for a fuller, slightly rummier taste, try Brugal, from the Dominican Republic, or Angostura, from Trinidad.

This is great to refresh the summer afternoons and nights! It’s a great party drink! I hope you can all enjoy it with your friends!

Rice with Milk (Arroz con leche)

Arroz con leche

I’ve been inactive lately.. Because I’ve had a ton of work at the university !! So, please pardon me.

Today, I will post a typical Spanish recipe. Arroz con leche, some say that Arroz con Leche descends from the Moorish occupation of Spain centuries ago, as may be evidenced by the traditionally Arabic mixture of cinnamon and rice. It may be savored warm or cold, though most Spanish establishments tend to serve arroz con leche straight from the oven. If you wish, you may decorate the finished pudding with raisins and an extra sprinkling of cinnamon. I don’t usually put any

Now that summer is behind the corne I would like everyoine to try it cold. On a  hot day. It is such an unusual mix for a desert… but strangly delecious and refreshing!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (16 fl. oz) milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 strips lemon rind
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) short-grain white rice
  • 3 medium egg yolks beaten
  • 1/3 cup (3 oz) sugar
  • 1/2 stick (2 oz) butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preparation:

In a large saucepan, slowly bring the milk, cinnamon stick, strips of lemon rind, and salt to a boil. With a slotted spoon, remove the cinnamon and lemon rind. Stir in the rice and egg yolks, reduce the heat, and allow the rice to simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring constantly.

When the rice is soft, add the sugar and butter and combine well. Pour the mixture into a serving dish, sprinkle with nutmeg, and serve warm.

And that’s it!
