1 large papaya – peeled and de-seeded
1 mango – peeled and pitted
4 peaches – washed and pitted
4 oranges – peeled
2 large sweet crisp apples
Cut apples into quarters and remove seeds. Push all ingredients through juicer leaving apples for last (hard fruits help push softer fruits through easier). Chill until ready to serve.
Fill serving glass 3/4 full with juice, 2 ice cubes, shot of rum and top off with soda or mineral water.
2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
2 grapefruit – peeled
1 crisp sweet apple
2 cups cubed watermelon – rind removed
2 – 4 tbsp honey or vanilla syrup to sweeten
Soda or Mineral Water to top up beverage
Quarter the apple and remove seeds. Juice all ingredients in a juicer leaving the apple for last. Sweeten juice if desired and stir well. Put in sealed container and chill until ready for use.
You can use champagne or highball glasses. Add a little ice and liquor of your choice. Fill glass about 3/4 full with juice. Top up with soda or mineral water to give it some bubbles.
Grape Apple Bubbly
7 apples – sweet and crisp
4 cups seedless red grapes – washed and removed from stem
4 tsp honey or vanilla syrup – optional
Quarter apples and remove seeds. Push grapes then apples through a juicer. Add honey or vanilla syrup to juice and mix well.
Place in air tight container and chill until ready to use. Apples oxidize very quickly making the juice turn brown. For best results make this juice before serving.
