Kennedy White House Daiquiri Recipe

  • 2 parts rum
  • 2 parts frozen limeade
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • Add a few drops of Falernum (artificial sweetener like Sweet n' Low) to taste

Red Gate Farm Iced Tea Recipe (Marta Sgubin)

  • Put either 6 tea bags or 6 tablespoons loose tea in a teaball or muslin in a deep mixing bowl with a nice bunch of fresh mint. Pour 6 cups boiling water over the tea and mint, cover and let steep for ten minutes. The tea should be strong because the melting ice will weaken it.
  • Add 2/3 cup of orange juice and 1/2 cup of lime juice, then pour through a strainer into a pitcher. Cover the pitcher with foil and refrigerate. Jackie liked her tea with no sugar but for those who want it to be sweeter, add 1/2 cup of sugar syrup to the glass when it's poured onto the ice.
  • The sugar syrup is created by bringing 1 cup of water and 1 cup sugar to a boil together. When cool, store in a screw top jar in the refrigerator.
