KID SAFE COCKTAILS FOR NEW YEARS EVE

COLORFUL COCKTAILS
If your kids get no kick from plain ginger ale,
have them try out these colorful cocktails.


TRIPLE RED SHIRLEY TEMPLE

1 oz. grenadine syrup
6 oz. cranberry juice
4 oz. cranberry ginger ale
1 paper umbrella
3 maraschino cherries
Orange slice
Ice (optional)

Mix the syrup, cranberry juice and ginger ale
in a tall glass. Open the umbrella and slide
the three cherries onto the handle. Balance
the umbrella on the glass rim in front
of the orange slice.


NEW YEAR'S SUNRISE

4 oz. seltzer
6 oz. orange juice
1/2 oz. grenadine syrup
1 orange slice
1 lemon slice
1 maraschino cherry
Plastic toothpick

In a tall glass, mix the seltzer and orange
juice. Slowly pour the grenadine into the
center of the glass, allowing the syrup to
settle on the bottom (thanks to its greater
density). Garnish with the orange, lemon
and cherry, stacked and skewered
with the toothpick.


STARRY, STARRY NIGHT

4 oz. papaya juice
2 oz. pineapple juice
4 oz. ginger ale
Lemon and lime peel
1 or 2 slices of star fruit
Ice (optional)

In a tall glass, mix the papaya and pineapple
juices and the ginger ale. For the garnish,
use a small, star-shaped cookie cutter to cut
star shapes from the lemon and lime peels.
Slide the slices of star fruit onto the glass rim.
