Beverages

In honor of a cultural icon and talent who stole many hearts, a drink was created for the little curly headed dancer and actress.  At 21 years of age, she retired from the Hollywood scene and later became a United States ambassador.  On Monday, Feb. 10,2014, she died at the age of 85.

Here’s your chance to create your own version of the non-alcoholic beverage.

The “singing cowboy” Roy Rogers

Known for his clean-cut and positive image,  actor and singer Roy Rogers had this this non-alcoholic drink named after him.

This is also sometimes called a Cherry Cola despite the fact that most grenadine is made of pomegranate, not cherries. Whatever you call it, it is a nice mocktail.

Lea & Perrins® Virgin Bloody Mary

Virgin Bloody Mary

Drink your meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (250 mL) ice cubes
  • 3 ounce (90 mL) tomato juice
  • 3 dashes (or more to taste) Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce®
  • 1/2 ounce (15 mL) lemon juice
  • dash hot sauce (to taste)
  • pinch salt (to taste)
  • pinch pepper (to taste)
  • Celery salt
  • Celery stalk
  • Lime wedge

Preparation:

Shake all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and strain into a highball glass over crushed ice. Garnish with the lime wedge and celery stalk.

Twists:

Twist 1: For a cool slushy cocktail, freeze tomato juice in ice cube trays and pulse in a blender with worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and lemon juice.

Twist 2: For a spicy Bloody Mary, add a little prepared horseradish and garnish with a shrimp (in place of celery and lime).

Twist 3: Add an Asian twist to your classic bloody mary: 1) Substitute lime juice for lemon juice and add grated fresh ginger as a garnish. 2) Substitute wasabi paste for hot sauce and garnish with garlic chives instead of celery stalks and lime.

Twist 4: For a healthier option, use 25% Less Salt Tomato Juice as a base.
