Juice DrinkAbout Making Cool Juice Drinks
Excerpt from Cool Coyote Cafe Juice Drinks, by Mark Miller & Brett Kemmerer

Always use freshly squeezed juices whenever possible, rather than frozen or bottled juices. Not only are they more flavorful and likely to contain more beneficial vitamins and minerals, but they are also more acidic and less likely to be bitter or give drinks an off flavor.

Always use super-fine sugar when it's called for because it dissolves more easily then regular sugar.

For drinks that do not require ice (and even for those that do), chill the glasses. You can do this either by placing ice in the empty glass and then discarding it before pouring in the juice drink, or by placing the glasses in the freezer of refrigerator.

For blended drinks, ice should be crushed or cracked into small pieces so the blending process takes as little time as possible. Over blended drinks can be too cold. Ice for stirred drinks, on the other hand, should be large pieces to prevent it from melting and diluting the juice.

The best way to crush ice is to place some cubes in a clean dish towel or cloth and hit the ice on a solid surface or with a heavy mallet. For small quantities of crushed ice, you can cup an ice cube or two in your hand and rap the ice sharply with the back of a tablespoon.

Don't forget that fruit juice ice cubes are an easy and colorful way to dress up any drink. We've found that fruit juice cubes are always a big hit at children's parties.

To salt the glass, rub the rim with a slice of lime a dip it in saucer of bar salt. Sugaring the rim of the glass is done just like salting. Simply rub the rim of a rocks glass with a slice of lime, then dip it in a saucer of super-fine sugar.

Frozen strawberries are convenient to have on hand, particularly in the winter months, and they also help thicken any drink you add them to. We also recommend keeping frozen blueberries on hand as they make an excellent substitute for other berries in smoothie recipes.

While melons are nutritious and their juice is an excellent tonic, some people do not digest melon juice well when it is mixed with other fruit juices such as peach or apple.
